"I'm incredibly excited by what we're doing, and so grateful to Ted Turner and to all who have supported this important endowment in his name. The [professorship] is a way to honor Ted -- a pioneer in media, conservation and the environment. We will teach future storytellers how to capture compelling narratives about the planet and build on GW's reputation in environmental communication and storytelling.
