Then this blog followed, and like an old testament chapter, it begat Fordham’s Twitter account, which then begat our own Facebook profile. And now, Fordham has unveiled its own YouTube portal, chock full of videos as short as several minutes and as long as an hour.

The site, which already has 41 videos archived on it, is an exciting addition to our list of media outlets, because it allows what we in the news and media relations department have long seen up close: The seemingly never ending instances of fascinating conversations and debates that fill the halls and rooms of the Rose Hill, Lincoln Center and Westchester campuses.

A small sampling of the videos already up include luminaries such as Michael Bloomberg, Tim Russert, Mike Wallace and Walter Cronkite. With the 2009/2010 academic year fast approaching, we’ve got high hopes for this new portal.
