Merrill Brown joins this episode as our featured guest. After almost 5 years at the helm of Montclair State University’s brand new School of Communication, he is leaving this position next month.
Brown is an educator, consultant, investor, veteran media executive and journalist. Merrill has worked at The Saint Louis Dispatch, The Winston-Salem Sentinel, The Washington
Star and Washington Post … so it’s fair to say he is still very much a champion of print media. He calls print journalism and local journalism a key to a democracy. Prior to joining Montclair State, Merrill launched and was Editor-In- Chief of MSNBC’s website –
which he also founded — and a founding member of the team that launched Court TV. He understands the fast-paced environment of today’s newsrooms and the need for multimedia journalists to join the ranks, a vision he brought to Montclair State.
