Department of Communication Associate Professor Mike Igoe gave a virtual presentation at the Broadcast Education Association's On-Location Conference, held Oct. 7-12, as part of a panel on "The Power of Partnerships.”

The panel discussed how colleges and universities can develop relationships with the media to produce content which also trains students.

At the same conference, Mr. Igoe also won an Award of Excellence in the Creative Arts competition news category for the video: "The Marx Brothers & the Story of Freedonia Marxonia." It was produced in collaboration with department Associate Professor and Chair Roslin Smith and Jim Gibbons, videographer in the Department of Marketing and Communications. Two seniors, Natalie Picarazzi, a Communication: Video Production major, and Dylan Jock, Communication: Audio/Radio Production, were student assistants in the production.

The five-minute video is a historical piece about the dispute between the Village of Fredonia and the Marx brothers about their 1933 movie, “Duck Soup.” Despite the dispute, experts seen in the video believe the film made a significant contribution to the development of modern comedy.

On-Location provides professional development with a series of hands-on training sessions, and an opportunity to promote academic scholarship through research and creative sessions and competitions.
