Longtime NBC10 reporter Lu Ann Cahn announced last month she’s retiring from TV journalism — now we know where she’s landing: At Temple University, where she’ll be the director of career services at the School of Media and Communication. It’s a brand-new position.

“One of the most satisfying things I’ve been able to do during my career is mentor hundreds of interns who are now working journalists,” Cahn said in a press release from Temple. “There is no doubt Temple has the best media and communications program in our region and it’s growing. I feel so fortunate I now have this opportunity to work full time with Temple students and can’t wait to help launch the next generation of professional communicators.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to have someone of Lu Ann’s reputation, experience and integrity joining us,” said David Boardman, the school’s dean. “Her passion for excellence will inspire our students, and her wisdom and network will help them land great jobs and internships.”

Cahn had been at NBC10 since 1987. She led th station’s Emmy-award winning coverage of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, and she gained national recognition for her book on surviving breast cancer, I Dare Me.
