Kim Osorio, former editor in chief of The Source magazine, will visit Syracuse University?s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications on Tuesday, Feb. 24. She will speak at 1 p.m. in the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium in Newhouse 3. A book signing will follow. The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in SU pay lots.
Osorio was the first female editor in chief of The Source, which covers hip-hop music, culture and politics. She led the publication during some of its highest-selling issues, but later sued for sexual harassment and received a reported $15.5 million settlement. She is the author of ?Straight from the Source: An Expose from the Former Editor in Chief of the Hip-Hop Bible? (VH1, 2008), in which she gives a behind-the-scenes look at her years at The Source.
The event is co-sponsored by the Newhouse magazine department, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and ED2010. For more information, contact Shelly Griffin at (315) 443-4004 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
