Excellent people and opportunities, can feel like a bubble

Pros: Plenty of chances to hone pitching, booking and audio editing skills. Competitive pay and benefits and pleasant office environment. Overall, the hosts and behind-the-scenes staff are friendly and easy to work with and there's a feeling of comradery in the newsroom.

Cons: Can feel closed-minded as most people come from similar backgrounds and share similar interests and political views. Entry-level employees often must prove themselves by working temporary assignments before they're hired full-time.

Sound like a cool place to work?

    Mar 22, 2019 - Randy Brecker, jazz trumpeter

    Six-time GRAMMY®-winning jazz bassist Christian McBride can be likened to a force of nature, fusing the fire and fury of a virtuoso with the depth and grounding of a seasoned journeyman. Powered by a relentless energy and a boundless love of swing, McBride’s path has described a continuous positive arc since his arrival on the scene. With a career now blazing into its third decade, the Philadelphia native has become one of the most requested, most recorded, and most respected figures in the music world today.

    Raised in a city steeped in soul, McBride moved to New York in 1989 to pursue classical studies at the Juilliard School. There he was promptly recruited to the road by saxophonist Bobby Watson. Call it a change in curriculum: a decade’s worth of study through hundreds of recording sessions and countless gigs with an ever-expanding circle of musicians. He was finding his voice, and others were learning to listen for it.

    Currently he hosts and produces “The Lowdown: Conversations With Christian” on SiriusXM satellite radio and National Public Radio’s “Jazz Night in America,” a weekly radio show and multimedia collaboration between WBGO, NPR and Jazz at Lincoln Center, showcasing outstanding live jazz from across the country. With his staggering body of work, McBride is the ideal host, drawing on history, experience, and a gift for storytelling to bridge the gap between artist, music, and audience. He brings that same breadth of experience to bear as Artistic Advisor for Jazz Programming at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC).

  • Join the Contemporary Catholic Writers Reading Group for happy hour and a discussion of 

    Signals by Tim Gautreaux 


    Containing twelve new stories and nine classics from previous collections, Signals is Tim Gautreaux at his best. Effortlessly conjuring the heat and humidity of the author’s beloved South, these stories of men and women grappling with faith, small town life, and blue-collar work are alternately ridiculous and sublime. For both longtime fans and readers lucky enough to encounter him for the very first time, Signals cements Gautreaux’s place as an American master.

    About the Author:

    Tim Gautreaux is the author of two previous novels and two collections of stories. His work has appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, GQ, Harper's Magazine, and The New Yorker, as well as in volumes of the O. Henry and The Best American Short Story annuals. A professor emeritus in English at Southeastern Louisiana University, he lives with his family in Hammond.



    Q: What is the Contemporary Catholic Writers Group?

    A: CCW is a reading series started by Catholic University English graduate students in 2015. Learn more about us on our English department webpageand listen to author talks and interviews here. All CCW events are free and open to everyone.

    Q: How do you choose which books to read?

    A: Everyone who participates in a book discussion during a given semester is invited to suggest titles for the next semester's reading list and to vote on the final selections. We often take titles from lists compiled by leading Catholic literary artists and editors (here and here, for example) and the Catholic Literary Imagination conference series (here and here), but we are always open to new ideas from a variety of people and sources. 

    Q: Will the author be present at this book discussion?

    A: No, but we will update the event page if there's ever a surprise visit.

    Q: Why do I need to register? 

    A: RSVPs help us ensure there will be enough space, food, and drink for everyone. We appreciate the heads up!

    Q: Should I bring anything for happy hour?

    A: Feel free to bring a beverage or snack to share, but we'll be just as happy if you just bring yourself. 

    Q: What if I haven't finished the book before the meeting?

    A: Join us anyway! We enjoy serious, in-depth discussions focused on major themes, characters, and the nuts and bolts of literary craft, but we're not sticklers. Regardless of how far you are in the book, you're welcome to participate as much or as little as you're comfortable with. We recommend picking out a favorite passage or two that we can read aloud and use as jumping off points for further discussion. 

    Q: Where exactly is the event location and where can I park?

    A: Marist Annex is on the north end of campus (C7 on campus map): Free street parking is available on Harewood Road.
