Mississippi’s leading broadcasters from across the state will meet with and mentor students for the Mississippi Association of Broadcasters (MAB) Day Thursday, April 18 at The University of Southern Mississippi’s Hattiesburg campus.

The event will give selected students the opportunity to engage in one-on-one portfolio reviews with media professionals in the broadcasting, production and advertising fields.

“This is an excellent opportunity for students to receive honest critiques from professionals,” said Dr. Mary Lou Sheffer, associate professor of mass communication and journalism and organizer of this year’s MAB Day. “It will also allow students to network and gain professionals’ insight regarding their fields of study.”

The general public is encouraged to attend and participate in a panel discussion scheduled from 1 -2:30 p.m. on the second floor of the Thad Cochran Center.

The MAB is a nonprofit trade association for radio and television stations in Mississippi. Its purpose is to assist members with broadcast industry and general business related challenges. MAB members are offered educational seminars, legal hotlines, lobbying representation, updates on industry trends, and opportunities to network with other broadcasters.
