"Who did the artwork of the AU Eagle?"

JDM's new Eagle art was created by Ohio-born artist and animator, Ty Schafrath.

The son of former Cleveland Browns left tackle, and Wooster native Dick Schafrath, Ty's animation credits include Nickelodeon's "The Angry Beaver's Show," and more recently, Walt Disney's "The Princess and the Frog."

"Ty's work is phenomenal!" said Tim McCarty, Interim Chair of Journalism & Digital Media, "I've been looking to find the right project to feature his work for a long time, and when JDM was created this year, I knew Ty was the right artist to bring the Eagle to life!"

Besides episodic and feature-length animation work, Ty also creates a wide variety of art from specialized greeting cards, to caricatures, to book illustrations and web art. Check out his other work here!

Lee Owens' Show featuring Ashland Football set to air on STO!

The premiere episode of the Lee Owens' Show will air in primetime on Sports Time Ohio Friday, Nov. 5th at 8pm!

Produced by Ashland's Journalism & Digital Media department, the first episode features Matt Brubaker, a senior Sport Comm. major as host, Eagles Head Football Coach Lee Owens and special guest sophomore quarterback Taylor Housewright.

"The opportunity to have student-produced programming air on STO in primetime all over the state of Ohio, and all over the country on satellite," said Tim McCarty, Interim Chair of the Journalism & Digital Media department, "came about because of our unique relationship with STO and the Ashland alumni working there. We think it's a great opportunity for JDM students, and what sets this program apart from other college media programs."
