In a world of new media, The Temple News has taken another big step.
In what we hope to be the beginning of a series, with the help of our Online Editor Sean Blanda, I have put together a multimedia profile of pop rock legends and former Temple students, Daryl Hall & John Oates.
Play one of their classics below, read about the band and slip into the deep, wonderful slumber of blue-eyed soul.
I also wrote a second article in placing Hall & Oates in the broader Sound of Philadelphia.
Thanks in large part to our online editor Sean Blanda, The Temple News, the college newspaper for which I work that services the Temple University community, has finally launched its independently designed Web site, based off WordPress.
I am happy to say I was active in the switch over and working with Sean on its design elements.
Check it out or read Seany’s blog on the real details of how the switch, from College Publisher which hosts most college papers in the country, went down.
For The Temple News, the college newspaper for which I work, I filmed yesterday’s men’s basketball game between Temple University and crosstown Big 5 rival St. Joseph’s. A friend and colleague, Sean Blanda, edited it. The quality is less than stellar because of some technicalities – this was our paper’s first foray into adding video to our Web site – but check it out. Temple lost on a buzzer beater.
