Guess who came to UNH last night?

Last night, she spoke at UNH. The turnout was good, especially for one of the first lovely fall evenings of the semester, and the crowd included lots of UNH journalism students.

Gladstone offered them advice on building their careers and navigating the modern information ecosystem. She shared the stage with New Hampshire Public Radio’s Virginia Prescott, and it was refreshing to hear two female voices talk about the state of the media — a conversation too often dominated by men.

Here are some highlights I posted on Twitter:

Gladstone’s visit was co-hosted by the university and NHPR, where she spoke to listeners on this morning’s edition of The Exchange. Listen here.
