The Smith School hosted the taping of the national television program CEO Exchange on May 2, 2006. During the taping, five Smith MBA students had the opportunity to ask questions of the shows guests, Robert Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Television, and Bill Marriott, CEO of Marriott International Inc. There's also a great video tour of the Smith School's Van Munching Hall.
The show will air on PBS stations in June; check your local station for listings or visit the CEO Exchange Web site for more information: http://www.pbs.org/wttw/ceoexchange/
