NORTH ADAMS, MA—Dan Bazile, weekend morning anchor for WNYT News Channel
13 in Albany, speaks at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts Wednesday, December 2 at 3 p.m. in Murdock Hall Room 218. The event, which is free and open to the public, is hosted by the MCLA chapter of the National Broadcasting Society (NBS).
Bazile will deliver a talk entitled “Television Broadcasting in a Competitive Mass Media Environment.”
“The goal is to ensure that once students listen to the presentation, that it has some educational value to them. They aspire to get a job in this industry, ultimately,” said Dr. Joseph Ebiware, the NBS advisor and a broadcasting professor at MCLA.
“NBS promotes the ethics and ideals of the broadcasting industry, ideals for students who aspire to be in the broadcasting fields through programs and lectures. The idea is that students can promote awareness and learn the intricacies of the broadcasting industry,” Ebiware said.
Bazile joined the WNYT news team in March 2004 after getting his start in the industry at Albany’s WXXA. Prior to his broadcasting career, he was an actor and freelance writer.
On television Bazile has covered everything from snowstorms and Albany politics to the September 11th terrorist attacks and the extradition of Ira Einhorn from Europe to the United States to serve prison time for murder. He grew up in New York City, where he attended Springfield Gardens High School. He received a bachelor’s degree in communications and theatre from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. Bazile lives in Saratoga County with his wife Doreen and their daughter. In his free time he plays the piano and writes screenplays.
Past NBS lecturers here include WTEN’s Steve Caporizzo and Terry McSweeney and WNYT’s Elaine Houston. Visit www.mcla.edu for more information.
