Veteran Broadcaster Teaching Communication Classes

Well-known Philadelphia TV news reporter and anchor Dick Sheeran is teaching media-related classes this spring at ACCC through the new Beacons by the Sea Visiting Professor program. The initiative is funded by the ACCC Foundation and the Beacons lighthouse project.

Sheeran is the first visiting professor and teaches two classes, will provide faculty development and speak to chamber groups in Atlantic and Cape May counties.

While he has served as a reporter and editor for a variety of media, including newspapers and radio, he is best known for his 30-year stint as news reporter and anchor for KYW-TV (CBS), Philadelphia. During his distinguished career, Sheeran covered such ground-breaking stories as the approval of Atlantic City casino gaming, the Pope John Paul II visit to Philadelphia in 1979, the funeral of Princess Grace of Monaco and 36 consecutive Miss America pageants.
