ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University saluted the region’s media outlets during Media Appreciation Day on Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2015.

This is the second year for the event which brings media representatives and Concord officials together for a morning discussion on the latest news and developments at the University. The gathering was held in University Point on the Athens campus and was hosted by Concord’s Office of Advancement.

The program began at 9:30 a.m. in the Wilkes Family Chapel with welcoming remarks. Guests then had the opportunity to attend several sessions allowing them to gather information and story ideas on a variety of topics.

Academics and athletics were the focus of the first concurrent sessions which ran from 9:45 a.m. until 11 a.m. in University Point. A session with the President’s cabinet featured “Story Idea Networking” and was held from 11:10 a.m. through 11:50 a.m. in the Pais Fellowship Hall.

Media then had the opportunity to attend a showcase of Concord’s radio station, WVCU-FM, at noon at the Marsh Library.
