New faculty hires at USC Annenberg

Both new assistant professors come billed as multi-media journalists. Seattle Times news producer Robert Hernandez and new media researcher and author Andrew Lih, whose new book is "The Wikipedia Revolution: How a Bunch of Nobodies Created the World's Greatest Encyclopedia," begin teaching in the fall. USC previously announced the hiring of Henry Jenkins from MIT to a joint appointment at the Annenberg School for Communication and USC's School of Cinematic Arts.
