Peter C. Newman appointed visiting professor at Ryerson journalism and business schools

Peter C. Newman, whose career as a magazine and newspaper editor-in-chief (Maclean's and Toronto Star) is only overshadowed by his output of some 24 books about Canadian politics and business, has been appointed the visiting professor of distinction at the Ted Rogers school of management and the school of journalism at Ryerson University.
"In the school of journalism," said Newman in a release, "Ryerson is providing students with the most important ingredient for success that I have encountered in my career - hands-on application of their learning, real-life experience and the need to take the occasional risk."
His duties are to deliver lectures and seminars to undergraduate and graduate students in a variety of journalism and business courses, and give two public lectures in the winter term.
Newman was apppointed editor-in-chief of Maclean's in 1971 and in 1975, led the magazine to an increase in frequency to bi-weekly and then again in 1978, becoming Canada's first newsweekly.
