September 24, 2003

September 24, 2003, Greencastle, Ind. - Mark Johnson, political reporter for the Charlotte Observer and a 1988 graduate of DePauw University, will return to campus tomorrow, Thursday, September 25, to discuss his experiences as an embedded journalist covering the war in Iraq. Sponsored by the Media Fellows program, Johnson's presentation, "Embedded in Iraq," will take place at 7:30 p.m. in Watson Forum of the Eugene S. Pulliam Center for Contemporary Media. The event is free and open to the public.

"Like a lot of reporters, I just love the front-row seat to history. And war is probably the biggest event in history," Johnson told DePauw students by phone from the Middle East on March 14, five days before the war began. He had a first-hand perspective of the war in Iraq as an embedded reporter with the 82nd Airborne.
