CU professor awarded fellowship by Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters

Cameron University assistant professor of communication Steve Adams has been named the Lisa John Faculty Fellow for summer 2009 by the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters' Education Foundation. During his fellowship, Adams will spend a month working in the newsroom at KWTV in Oklahoma City. He will be recognized at the OAB Student Day Luncheon on April 17 during the OAB annual meeting in Tulsa.

"Steve Adams' broadcast knowledge is an asset to Cameron's radio and television students," says Tony Allison, Chair, CU Department of Communication. "This fellowship will allow him to further develop his knowledge base and will ultimately benefit our broadcast students."

Adams has been a member of the CU faculty since 1987. He is also the play-by-play announcer for Lawton Eisenhower football. He currently serves as Secretary-Treasurer of the Oklahoma Broadcast Education Association. This is the second time Adams has received the Lisa John Faculty Fellowship.

The OAB Education Foundation awards one Lisa John Faculty Fellowship annually to a faculty member from an Oklahoma college or university. The fellowship provides an opportunity for faculty members at Oklahoma's broadcast schools to update their skills and develop closer relationships with radio and television broadcasters.
