Hufker on KTRS to Discuss Today’s Beatles ‘Rooftop’ Show

The School of Communications and its Department of Audio Aesthetics and Technology are commemorating a big Beatles anniversary today by hosting a recreation of the “rooftop concert” by the Abbey Road Warriors, a local Beatles tribute group, who will perform at noon on Webster University’s Emerson Library 4th floor outdoor patio.

Professor and department chair Barry Hufker appeared on KTRS-AM radio to discuss the original concert, today’s tribute event and how Webster audio engineering and video production students will record today’s show. Watch a clip of Hufker’s interview embedded above (or on YouTube here).

Cosic Featured in St. Louis Magazine

Video artist and School of Communications adjunct faculty member Zlatko Ćosić was featured in a profile by St. Louis Magazine. Cosic, who is also a Webster alumnus (BA in Video Production and Interactive Digital Media), discussed his creative process and the St. Louis art scene. His latest video installation, Still Adjusting, opened at Gallery 210 of UM-St. Louis this month.

Rishe on February’s Biggest Sports Events

The Super Bowl isn’t just football’s biggest event — it’s also big for business, with the advertising machine around it an industry in itself. In his latest columns for Forbes online, George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology professor Patrick Rishe discusses this business side of sports. He writes about how Peyton Manning, one of the quarterbacks in this year’s game, is the top active athlete endorser in the U.S.

Separately, Rishe wrote about February’s other massive sporting event — the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi — and how advertisers will seek to capitalize on American viewing habits.
