Speaking at the event will be Norfolk-native Roosevelt Harrell III, who has previously worked with Roc-A-Fella Records recording artists, and Hampton alum and producer Matt White from "Overnight" on 95.7 radio.

The Entertainment Industry Seminar will allow students interested in working in radio the chance to ask questions and learn what it's really like to break into the dynamic world of radio. Said Anderson, "This is an opportunity for students to have direct access to a radio veteran with a 20-year career, as well as to gain practical career insights from White who is a recent HU graduate."
