Mr. Miller, or "Bruce," as just about everyone calls him, is the editor-in-chief of the Sioux City Journal, the region's largest daily news publication. He has instructed newswriting classes at Briar Cliff University since 1983.
In his own words, "My goal is to duplicate the actual working environment students face once they graduate. By the time they complete the three newswriting classes, they're able to transition into a job in the media. Even though methods of dissemination have changed drastically over the past decade, the basics remain the same. If students have a good foundation in newsgathering, they should be able to apply the skills to any medium."
