The University of Texas at Austin this week announced the appointment of former Washington Post editor R.B. Brenner as director of the School of Journalism.
The university released a statement Thursday:
"Brenner brings an acute awareness of new trends facing journalism and demonstrated success at furthering the teaching and intellectual missions of journalism programs," said Roderick P. Hart, dean of the Moody College of Communication. "In turn, he will help our students anticipate the shifting media landscape and enable them to make the communication breakthroughs of tomorrow."
