Julia Sandidge, the professional advisor of CTV 11, the campus television station, announced her resignation March 8 in an e-mail to her staff.
â€œI am putting my health and the health of my family at the top of my priorities,â€ Sandidge said in her e-mail. She did not return phone calls, and senior staff at the Rocky Mountain Student Media Corporation, the non-profit parent company of CTV 11, KCSU, College Avenue magazine and the Collegian, could not comment on the reasons for her departure.
Sandidge worked as the advisor for CTV 11 since 2005. As a mentor, she helped students master on-camera techniques but mostly focused on editing writing for broadcast, said Mary Timby, the station manager at CTV 11.
Sandidge will likely not be replaced before the end of this semester, said Larry Steward, president of the RMSMC. Efforts for find a replacement for Sandidge are â€œin their infancy,â€ Timby said.
Sandidge still works as a professor in the universityâ€™s technical journalism department.
