Dr. Samir Husni

Rare is the day when national or international publications/stories regarding the media industry don’t call on Dr. Samir Husni for comment/analysis of a trend or development. Last summer, University Communications printed out the line-item attributions to him in one news cycle and it took 36 pages. (They review all Internet mentions of “Ole Miss” or “University of Mississippi.”)

Dr. Husni’s blog re the Vanity Fair cover of Caitlyn Jenner drew worldwide attention, including the attention of Vanity Fair editor Chris Mitchell who both commented and offered Dr. Husni some comments for his blog, mrmagazine.wordpress.com.

All of this continues to keep the Meek School in the conversations related to the media industry. And, as here, not merely in the conversation but leading.
