Broadcaster Dick Sheeran Teaching Media Classes This Spring at ACCC

November 28, 2007

Under a new visiting professor program, well-known Philadelphia TV news reporter and anchor Dick Sheeran will teach two courses at ACCC during the spring 2008 semester: Introduction to Mass Media and Special Topics in News Writing- Broadcast Journalism.

While he has served as a reporter and editor for a variety of media, including newspapers and radio, he is best known for his 30-year stint as news reporter and anchor for KYW-TV (CBS), Philadelphia.

During his distinguished career, Sheeran covered such ground-breaking stories as the approval of Atlantic City casino gaming, the Pope John Paul II visit to Philadelphia in 1979, the funeral of Princess Grace of Monaco and 36 consecutive Miss America pageants.

The visiting professor program is funded by the ACCC Foundation and Beacons by the Sea, a public arts and fundraising project that placed 73 fanciful artist-decorated lighthouses in prominent locations throughout New Jersey's Atlantic and Cape May counties during the summer of 2003.
