Wanda Lloyd: What Matters in Media

Join the Reynolds School of Journalism for a virtual forum with former top editor Wanda S. Lloyd. Lloyd will take part in a Leonard Ethics Chair virtual visit, “Wanda Lloyd: What Matters in Media,” on Monday, October 12, from 4-5 p.m.   

Part of the conversation will focus on her recently published memoir, “COMING FULL CIRCLE: From Jim Crow to Journalism”. The memoir is a look at her life, from growing up in the Deep South to becoming a successful newspaper editor. As a public speaker and professional in media, she has a passion for inspiring the next generation. She will touch on topics such as journalism, race and diversity in the media industry and career development.    

Lloyd was a senior editor at USA Today and an editor at The Washington Post, Miami Herald and the Atlanta Journal. She has been a four-time juror, a nominated judge who determines what makes a work distinguished, for the Pulitzer Prize. Lloyd is a former associate professor and former chair of the Department of Journalism and Mass Communications at Savannah State University, Savannah, Georgia. The National Association of Black Journalists inducted Lloyd into its Hall of Fall in 2019. She is currently co-editing a book of essays, “MEETING AT THE TABLE: African American Women Write on Race, Culture and Community”, set to be published in 2020. 

Lloyd’s forum is free and open to the public. Participate in “Wanda Lloyd: What Matters in Media” on Zoom here or watch live on the Reynolds School of Journalism Facebook
