Event Description

From Rio to Normal – Craig Bohnert has spread breaking news for 8 Olympiads.

Illinois State University alum Craig Bohnert tells people he is just one of thousands who make the International Olympic Games the world’s greatest gathering of young people.  It’s just that Bohnert’s unique role gets the news of American competitors out quickly, accurately and creatively.   Join the School of Communication to hear Craig Bohnert speak about his experiences from locations including Beijing, London, Athens and Rio.  He will talk about the process of being “fast and accurate” with results and sound bites, as well as the challenges which emerge in the process – like the USA men’s swim team members’ encounter with law enforcement.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
