The Roundtable Panel: a daily open discussion of issues in the news and beyond.
Today's panelists are WAMC’s Alan Chartock, Director of the Journalism Program at the University at Albany Rosemary Armao, and corporate attorney, Rich Honen.
Today we announced WAMC's longtime Roundtable panelist and friend, Rosemary Armao, will be moving abroad to work with Eastern European and Arabic reporters on investigations of crime and corruption. She describes her new opportunity and the motivation behind her decision to take on this endeavor here:
Dear WAMC listeners,
I have an opportunity to work as an investigative editor with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project. That's a non-profit news agency that investigates money laundering, bribery, conflict of interest and corruption at top levels of government. I will be working in Bosnia, Jordan, maybe Africa, and wherever else assigned.
Honestly the election of Donald Trump, his mixing of business and government affairs, and his denigration of the press have all reminded me how important this cross border work by brave journalists is. And while I love UAlbany students and you all here, this seems a time not to be teaching and talking but to be doing. I can't think of a better way to end my career.
