UD in the News Jan. 19-25

Fox News interviewed University of Dayton Research Institute impact physics group leader Kevin Poormon about the risks drones pose to aircraft. A portion of the interview aired on "Special Report w/ Bret Baier" and eight Fox affiliates nationwide. "Fox & Friends" also aired video from UDRI's test of a drone hitting an airplane wing. CNN ran aviation historian Janet Bednarek's Conversation piece, "In 'airports of the future', everything new is old again" which has more than 81,000 reads.

KCBS-AM in San Francisco interviewed assistant communication professor Alan Abitbol, whose research focuses on corporate social responsibility and public relations in a corporate communication setting, about his piece in The Conversation — "Razor Burned: Why Gillette's Campaign Against Toxic Masculinity Missed the Mark."

Locally, media covered UD events to remember the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the University supporting Say Yes to Education, a nonprofit that works with communities toward a goal of graduating every high school student and sending them to college.
