The museum was first housed on the third floor of Sherman Hall at Western Illinois University, which is where a reception and fundraiser took place to celebrate the museum's roots.
The event included a presentation called Stories from the Past by Museum Board Member Jackie Thompson and another called The Museum Today by Museum Board Chair Lois Lueck. There was also a silent auction.
This week's program is about Bill Knight's career and changes in the news industry. In addition, Lisa Kernek joins the panel to replace Knight.
Knight graduated from WIU, went on to be a reporter, and came back to Western to teach in the early 1990s. He never stopped writing and reporting, and will continue to do commentaries on Tri States Public Radio.
Knight said there have been many changes in the newspaper industry over the years. He said the one creating the biggest impact right now is in management.
