Broadcasters program

KSTP-TV news anchor Jessica Miles, a Brainerd-area native, joins her media director husband, Cory Kampschroer, on Thursday, Aug. 16 at Central Lakes College (CLC) to discuss “What’s Happening to Broadcast News?” The Center for Lifelong Learning at CLC is hosting the one-hour program which starts at 4 p.m. and will be followed by a half-hour for questions. It will be held in the Music Rehearsal Hall (E471) at CLC’s Brainerd campus.
Miles, who has been with 5 Eyewitness News in the Twin Cities since 2003, anchors the weekday evening news. She grew up in Lake Shore and graduated from Brainerd High School. She earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin.
Miles has earned one Edward R. Murrow Award for her work.
Kampschroer joined Hubbard Broadcasting in 2010 and is digital media director for KSTP. He oversees digital content for KSTP.com, the station’s media brands, and all of KSTP’s community websites. He had been an anchor-reporter for WCCO Radio.
The couple will discuss how network news is changing in light of social media, technology, and business bottom line. Miles will reflect on growing up in the Brainerd area and the influences on her career choice in journalism. The working couple will cite aspects of the challenge for high-profile anchors with a growing family.
Admission is free for members of the Center for Lifelong Learning and $6 for non-members. For information, contact Bev at 218-855-8118 or bberg@clcmn.edu or go to www.clcmn.edu/lifelonglearning
