William Jessup University has hired FOX40 Morning News anchor Paul Robins to lead their new Digital Communication and Design bachelor of arts degree program slated to begin fall of 2019 at the growing university.
Robins brings a wealth of media experience to his new role, most recently on KXTL FOX40 in Sacramento, where he served as the morning news anchor for more than ten years. His 35-year career in broadcasting includes Emmy Award winning work in television, including The Discovery Channel, PBS, and locally in San Francisco and Sacramento. Paul is a veteran of morning drive radio, having worked in Detroit and Dallas, and as co-host of the very successful “Paul & Phil Show” on Y92 in Sacramento for nearly 20 years.
“We are pleased and excited that Paul has chosen to join the William Jessup University faculty as both a program developer and lead faculty member in our Digital Communication and Design bachelor of arts degree program,” said Provost and Chief Academic Officer Dennis Jameson. “Professor Robins will bring a bounty of professional experience and knowledge from his long and illustrious career in media and broadcasting to his students.”
Jessup’s new Digital Communication and Design degree program combines creative strategies with state-of the-art technical skills in a single degree that equips students with expertise essential for creating attention-getting content that effectively communicates to modern audiences.
Robins responsibilities will include teaching, research and scholarship, the continuing design of curriculum, and facilitating faculty appointments. He will also be a sought after mentor for his students and a magnet for those who want to learn from an expert practitioner who has well over 30-years of experience in digital communication and design.
