Chuck Haga, UND Communications instructor and retired journalist, will moderate a discussion with Mike Jacobs, former editor and publisher of the Herald; Mark Trahant, UND Communications professor and independent journalist; Lorenzo Serna, a UND alum (B.A. and M.A. in English) and co-creator of Unicorn Riot, a Twin Cities-based media platform that produces live media, video, podcasts and reportage, and Jim Fuglie, former journalist, political activist and proprietor of The Prairie Blog.
