The following video highlights a few of Jim Boren s thoughts as he shared his past, Feb 15.

To begin Scholastic Journalism Week (SJW), Jim Boren, former executive editor and senior vice president of The Fresno Bee, came to the FC campus to teach Feather journalists and answer questions, Feb. 15.

Boren’s 48-year career in journalism began while he was attending Hoover HSin Fresno. The newspaper adviser inquired if he would be interested in covering sports for the school paper. Boren accepted the invitation and loved it.

Upon graduating, he attended Fresno City College, and later Fresno State, with a bit of doubt as to what he wished to pursue. Boren landed on journalism as his major and at the age of 19, The Fresno Bee offered him a position during the summer which ultimately evolved into a permanent full-time job in 1972.

The following video highlights a few of Jim Boren s thoughts as he shared his past journalistic experiences with the feather staff, Feb. 15.  Jim Boren worked for The Fresno Bee for 48 years, retiring after 48 years of service. Senior videographer, Jaden Ventura, filmed and edited the video below.
