Covering major news events such as big storms or elections used to be one-sided. News organizations such as WOUB gathered the news, packaged it, and then delivered it to you by television or radio only.

But, times have changed. News is no longer a monologue. It is no longer one dimensional.

It is now a dialogue between the media and the news consumer. It is a conversation involving traditional television and radio and also online sources and multiple forms of social media. It also is mobile -- news where you want it and how you want it.

Occasionally in life, you cross paths with someone who serendipitously makes a mark on your life, leaves a lasting impression and actually alters your future.  Such was the case with me and Connie Stevens – a long time WOUB employee.

Connie spent more than 20 years at WOUB from November 1979 through June 2001 and most of that time as WOUB AM Program Coordinator. I am sure most of you remember her voice and her easy-going “on-air” style as she greeted you every weekday morning for a number of years.

Change is a cornerstone of any media enterprise today and WOUB Public Media is no exception.

Sometimes, it's difficult for any of us to change routines or ways to which we are accustomed. However, over the past year, we have embraced change at WOUB and made it our friend.

Rivalries and competition are part of our daily existence and they certainly are part of university life. For the most part – rivalries are good things and are between entities of comparable abilities and mutual respect.

There are special rivalries in life and especially in sports. Some are new-found and some go back hundreds of years. Some are limited to a particular sport like the Ohio State-Michigan football rivalry and some university rivalries are more all-encompassing including every sport, campus culture and even academics.

As we entered a new century, 2001 was a year of upheaval. It was the events of September 11 that launched this country and the media on paths of change.

It was a line of demarcation in many people’s lives and in the collective life of our country. The pulse of the nation has never been the same and neither would be our PASSION for instant communication.
