Webster alumni and faculty in the news:

Alumnus Paul Goetz’s Creative Push for ‘Arrested Development’

Paul Goetz, a 2008 Webster University School of Communications graduate, was featured on KPLR-11 in St. Louis for his creative effort to get on the cult hit show “Arrested Development,” which is going back into production. With the help of several fellow Webster alumni, Goetz put together the web series “Paul Goetz’s Last Ditch Effort.” Visit KPLR to see clips of the series and how Goetz’s gambit turned out.

Rishe on ‘CNBC SportsBiz’ on NBC Sports Network

“CNBC SportsBiz” on the NBC Sports Network twice sought insight on the economics of sports from Patrick Rishe, associate professor of Economics in the Webster University George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology. Thursday, Nov. 15, during the show’s “Scoreboard” segment, Rishe discussed the recent fire sale by Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria just one year after opening a new ballpark paid for by taxpayer dollars.  Rishe also commented on the finances of the Dallas Cowboys and how they can afford to play without a naming rights deal.

On Thursday, Nov. 8, Rishe appeared on the same segment to discuss Rory McIlroy’s impending endorsement deal with Nike, a record year for attendance in Major League Soccer, and the advent of a new athletic apparel line targeting children.
