Brown Bag Lunch with Evan Smith
Texas Tribune 1.0: Ten Things We've Learned So Far

Thu January 21, 2010 at LBJ School SRH 3.122

CEO and Editor in Chief for the Texas Tribune, Evan Smith will discuss his experience in starting up the Texas Tribune, a non-profit model news website. 

About Evan:

Evan Smith spent nearly 18 years at Texas Monthly, stepping down in August 2009 as the magazine's president and editor in chief. Previously he served as editor for more than eight years—only the third person to hold that title. On his watch, Texas Monthly was nominated for sixteen National Magazine Awards, and twice was awarded the National Magazine Award for General Excellence. A New York native, Smith has a bachelor's degree in public policy from Hamilton College and a master's degree in journalism from the Medill School at Northwestern University. He previously held editorial positions at a number of national magazines; most recently at The New Republic, where he was deputy editor. He hosts the weekly interview program, TEXAS MONTHLY TALKS.

Smith sits on the boards of the Austin Film Society, Trinity Episcopal School, the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, the Headliners Club and Matinee Media.
