Location: St. Charles Room, 1st Floor, Danna Center

In a city with two competing newspapers, New Orleans has witnessed its share of media wars. In a special guest appearance at Loyola University New Orleans, John Georges, publisher of The Advocate newspaper and CEO of Georges Media Group, will address that exciting topic, as well as his success as an entrepreneur and his long-term plan to provide news to print and online readers throughout south Louisiana. The free, public talk is set for Tuesday, Oct. 28, 7 p.m. in the St. Charles room, located in the Danna Student Center on the university’s main campus.

 

“Media Wars: The Impact of Entrepreneurship” is sponsored by Loyola’s newly created Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Development and the School of Mass Communication. Georges’ lecture is the first event of Loyola’s National News Engagement speaker series, which aims to get more millennials engaged in the news and current events. The talk follows a National News Engagement Day that took place earlier this month.

The new Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Development seeks to propel Loyola to become the top university hub for entrepreneurship and a leader in experiential education in the Gulf South.

Upon purchasing The Advocate in 2013, Georges assumed the role of CEO and publisher, beginning a new chapter in the newspaper’s history. The newspaper has expanded coverage in southwest Louisiana with The Acadiana Advocate and southeast Louisiana with The New Orleans Advocate, all while maintaining Baton Rouge’s daily paper, The Advocate.

The Georges family continues its plan to provide comprehensive news to readers throughout south Louisiana. In August, The Advocate acquired four weekly newspapers and associated websites: The Zachary Plainsman-News in Zachary, The Watchman in East Feliciana Parish, The St. Francisville Democrat in West Feliciana Parish and The St. Helena Echo in Greensburg.

Georges is also a driving force in many local, regional and statewide faith-based initiatives and philanthropic efforts.
