Mentor to generations of broadcast journalists passes away
Tom Griffiths, who helped to train hundreds of broadcast journalists over decades in the Communications program at Brigham Young University, died Sunday morning. KSL Newsradio’s Dan Bammes has more.
Cressman, a retired professor of Communications at BYU, also worked for KSL TV and the United States Air Force.
Current BYU faculty member Dale Cressman said Griffiths was a trusted mentor to generations of broadcasters.
“When he started, there was not a lot of funding, nor supervision. And he instilled in these students loyalty so that he could trust them.”
Griffiths is also responsible for starting one of the first student-run TV news programs in the country and served as the Director of News and Public Affairs for KBYU Television.
