A duo of prominent media professionals will be on hand in February to share their experiences at the sixth Annual KWU Media Reflections symposium.

Former KAKE-TV anchor,Larry Hatteberg and retired White House Press Corps photographer, Mark Reinstein will be the featured speakers during the two day event on February 3rd and 4th.

Event organizer Dr. David Silverman, associate professor of Communications at KW joined in the KSAL Morning News Thursday with a look at the lineup coming to Salina.

“One of the stories I hope Larry shares with us is his meeting Eisenhower in 1962 out at the Library,” Silverman said.

“He ended up with 30-minutes alone with Eisenhower as a cub reporter.”

Dr. Silverman also teased a story that Washington photographer Mark Reinstein told him about how he was allowed to take his camera into the U.S. Supreme Court chambers, “The Chief Justice puts his arm around him and says let’s go take some pictures in the chamber, and he’d been told strictly we don’t take pictures in the chamber.”

Reinstein is scheduled to speak in Fitzpatrick Auditorium in Sams Hall of Fine Arts at 7pm on Wednesday, February 3rd. Larry Hatteberg will share his memories on Thursday, February 4th at 7pm in Sams Chapel in the Hall of Pioneers.
