Dr. Oh Yeon Ho developed a concept for a new media outlet in response to a class assignment as a student in Regent's journalism program in 1996. "We had to write a report on a new media, with a unique concept that would have everlasting value and would work in the real world," Oh explains. "I came up with the idea that every citizen can be a reporter."
Upon graduating in 1997, he put that concept into action, creating OhmyNews.com—a media outlet populated with news contributed by thousands of citizen journalists from more than 100 countries worldwide.
Today, Oh is the president and CEO of OhmyNews and a leader in the citizen journalism movement. The impact of the Regent classroom experience on Oh's career has led him to visit the School of Communication & the Arts to encourage future reporters in embracing the realm of new media. "We're breaking down the barriers of who is a journalist and what is news ... I've believed for a long time that the quality of the reporting should be more valued than the size of the media outlet."
