“My name is Andrea Miller and I am the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies here at the Manship School of Mass Communication at Louisiana State University. I’m also an associate professor," said Miller.
"My research area is primarily in crisis communication,” Miller said.
“Every crisis is different ... You have to realize that every crisis has its own nuances. Nowadays, every hurricane [journalists] cover, if it doesn't meet that Katrina standard, the coverage may fall short … Every [storm is] different. It’s gonna impact people in a different way," Miller said. (Video via Fox, The Weather Channel, Travel Channel and PBS)
