Cameron University professor Steve Adams, a faculty member in the Department of Communication, has been elected president of the Oklahoma Broadcast Education Association (OBEA). Adams has been a member of the organization since it began in 1988. He becomes the first person elected to the organization’s top post two times, having previously served as president in 1996-97. Last year, Adams served as vice-president; he was the organization’s secretary-treasurer for the two years prior to that.
“It’s an honor to have your peers select you to represent them,” Adams said. “We all work together to ensure that broadcast students throughout Oklahoma are prepared to enter the workplace with the skills needed for a successful career in broadcast journalism.”
As President, Adams will also serve on the Board of Directors of the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters.
The Oklahoma Broadcast Education Association is comprised of 15 colleges and universities with broadcasting programs. OBEA sponsors three major events each year: two student-oriented seminars and a student awards competition. OBEA members work closely with the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters to promote quality broadcast education and professional preparation.
