Program Details:

And So It Goes: Adventures in Journalism

Linda Ellerbee, who still does it her way, also has a lot to say about journalism today and journalism tomorrow. Her commencement speeches to young journalism graduates are designed to encourage them to take their work seriously without taking themselves seriously, and to inspire them to make journalism better – because they can. 

Surviving Breast Cancer to Laugh Another Day

She talks of dealing with the medical profession, family, and friends – all of whom, even when well intentioned, occasionally seem misguided or absurd, if not downright silly. Ellerbee encourages women to become partners in their treatment, to stand up for themselves, to make a big noise, to fight – and fight back. 

How to Survive a Changing World & How to Change Your World

Linda Ellerbee gives her rules for surviving a changing world with the heart intact – from surviving breast cancer to climbing mountains, from overcoming obstacles to making a noise. In her life and in her career, Ellerbee has learned that change is the norm.

How to Raise Media-Savvy Kids

In the future, our kids will either learn to use the media that surround them as tools, or they will be tools of that media. Ellerbee offers insight and perspective gained from speaking with (and listening to) kids for nearly 20 years on the critically acclaimed children’s television series, Nick News, and from raising two media-savvy kids of her own.
