Jeffrey Lyons Guest Lecturer At ECU

A popular TV personalty and movie critic is at ECU for a week speaking to journalism students.

Jeffery Lyons was a co-host in the popular PBS series sneak previews and is also known for his time at NBC as a movie and theater critic.

Lyons has reviewed over 13,000 pieces in his career. He's at ECU teaching a feature writing course. His biggest piece of advice for journalism students is to, "Try to shoot a story in your head before you get there to try to be better than the other person from the other station. Check the background of the people involved, is there something no one else knows if your doing an interview. Be better prepared than anyone else. That's your goal."

Lyons will also be participating with the school of communications high school media workshop while he is in Greenville.
