Ceppos told Sean Webby of the Merc that he hopes to focus the school's faculty and students on the rich environmental and legal reporting topics in the Lake Tahoe area. He also wants the next generation of journalists to sharpen their analytical skills on a broader issue: "How did the media end up in this mess?"
- "None of us, including me, foresaw how much our lives would be changed by the new media," said Ceppos, 61, a fellow at Santa Clara University's Markkula Center for Applied Ethics. "The next time the new delivery method comes along, it's important that everybody doesn't sit around and worry and not take any action."
