COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Some of the top editors and producers in the sports journalism industry will gather in Knight Hall’s Eaton Theater at 7 p.m. March 6 to advise students on how to land the perfect job or internship.

The panel, hosted by the Shirley Povich Center for Sports Journalism, will feature Peter Barzilai (assistant managing editor, USA Today Sports), Adrianne Flynn (internship coordinator, Merrill College), Luke Jackson (managing editor, PressBox), Nina Mandell (director of digital media & managing editor, NBCSW) Heather McDonough (senior sports producer, NBC4), Kevin Merida (editor, The Undefeated) and Matt Vita (sports editor, The Washington Post)

George Solomon, director of the Povich Center, and Kevin Blackistone, professor of practice at the Philip Merrill College of Journalism, will moderate.

“Providing students the opportunity to learn hints and tips to acquiring a full-time job or internship from professionals is one of the most important things we do at the Povich Center and Philip Merrill College of Journalism,” Solomon said.

Audience members will be encouraged to ask the panelists questions after a formal discussion, and students are encouraged to bring their resumes. The event is free and open to the public.
