College Media in Action #11: Ka Leo’s Top Editor & Adviser Critique Paper at U. of Hawaii
College Media in Action is a CMM photo series aiming to provide glimpses of student journalists and college media outlets at work (or kicking back) — in the newsroom, the classroom, the field, the dorm or at an unofficial sacred journalist hangout of some sort.
Ka Leo O Hawaiʻi editor-in-chief Alex Bitter and longtime University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa student media adviser Jay Hartwell participate in a critique of the paper during a weekly Monday meeting. The 93-year-old independent student newspaper publishes a print issue each Monday.
The 32-page, full-color issue under critique earlier this month contains stories and photo spreads on a range of subjects — from surfers at Waimea Bay and local rappers with a spiritual bent to school sustainability efforts and a zero-tolerance smoking policy.
