Calame to teach biz journalism at Missouri
Barney Calame, a longtime reporter and editor at The Wall Street Journal and former president of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, will teach business journalism at the University of Missouri as a visiting professor this semester.
A story on the school’s website states, “In 2011 Calame received an honorary doctorate from the University of Missouri, awarded to alumni who have achieved distinction.
“‘Barney played a key role in getting The Journal published the day after 9/11 attack forced the staff out of its Manhattan headquarters,’ said Randall Smith, the Donald W. Reynolds Endowed Chair in Business Journalism. ‘He oversaw all sensitive major stories, and is viewed as one of journalism’s top ethicists.’
“Calame will visit campus and speak to students several times during the semester. He will help develop a new online publication for business news called Missouri Business Alert and provide input about the School’s business journalism curriculum.
“Calame’s visits are being sponsored by funding from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, which established Smith’s chair in 2008.”
