Willow Bay to Head USC Annenberg School of Journalism

Journalist Willow Bay has been named as the director of the School of Journalism at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.

Bay has held positions as senior editor, The Huffington Post, L.A. and special correspondent and host, Bloomberg TV. She has co-anchored ABC News’ Good Morning America/Sunday, CNN’s Moneyline News Hour, and has hosted and produced CNN’s long-form program, Pinnacle.

Her selection as director follows a national search across the private sector and academia.

“Her leadership will help our innovative school aggressively continue our path of creating – and defining – the digital future,” said USC Annenberg dean, Ernest J. Wilson III.

In fall 2014, the school will launch its new nine-month M.S. journalism program.

This new degree will correspond with the opening of USC’s 88,000-square-foot building called Wallis Annenberg Hall.

The building will feature a three-story media wall,  as well as professional-quality video, radio and vodcast studios and a digitally converged media center for the school’s student-run online, broadcast television, documentary and radio news outlets and PR agency.

Bay will start the position in July.
