Jane Clayson of the "CBS Evening News" and Marcus Mabry, chief correspondent for "Newsweek" have cancelled their appearances for Brigham Young University's "Communications Week 2003" due to the need to cover the war in Iraq.

Sponsored by the Department of Communications, the event is scheduled Monday through Friday, March 24-28. For a complete schedule, visit or call the department at (801) 422-2997.

The week will not only include lectures by professionals, but will also help to display some of the programs available in the Communications Department.

"We want to increase awareness throughout the university about the Communications Department and the programs we offer," said Nancy Christensen of Development and Alumni Relations who works with the Department of Communications.

King will speak at 10 a.m. in the Varsity Theater in the Wilkinson Student Center on Monday. Her lecture is focused on students.

An emeritus communications faculty reception will take place Thursday from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. in 3250 WSC.
