President and CEO of Rocky Mountain Student Media Corp.
Student Media Advisor
As Student Media Adviser, Jim works in close collaboration with the students who run the Rocky Mountain Collegian newspaper, Collegian.com, KCSU-FM, CTV and College Avenue magazine. He provides regular feedback and advises student leaders on all facets of day-to- day operations. Jim came to Rocky Mountain Student Media in Sept. 2015 after spending five years in an adviser’s role at Penn State University and Webster University, where student publications won three Pacemaker Awards from the Associated Collegiate Press. He is a former reporter for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and contributor to The Associated Press.
Kim is responsible for advising RMSMC’s student sales representatives, helping them develop and implement selling skills, and identifying business opportunities and generate advertising sales revenue for the Collegian. This is Kim’s fifteenth year at CSU. She has seen many students come and go through the advertising department. Each year she thinks there cannot possibly be another group of advertising representatives as talented as the ones before them, yet each year she is fortunate enough to mentor another group of tomorrow’s leaders. The most rewarding part of her job is seeing the continuous flow of talent and enthusiasm these students bring to the organization.
