Dr. David J. Schaefer (Ph.D., The Ohio State University, 2001) is a Professor and chair in the Department of Communication Arts at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio. In the 1980s and 1990s, he worked as a children's program producer in public television and as an announcer and newscaster for several commercial radio stations in the midwest. Beginning in 1995, he produced an international radio program, Franciscan University Connections, for the EWTN/WEWN global network. He currently is the advisor for the campus radio stations WFRScc and WFENcc.

He has taught undergraduate courses in digital audio/video production, media literacy, film history and theory, Indian cinema, international communications, web design, and media theory, and graduate courses in critical-cultural theory and Indian cinema. He specializes in research on popular Indian (Hindi) cinema, digital media competency/literacy, and global/intercultural communication. He has presented numerous conference papers and published journal articles and book chapters on several of these topics.

He is a member of the Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society, the International Communication Association, the Communication Institute for Online Scholarship, the Asian Media Information and Communication Centre, and serves on the Board of Directors for Urban Mission Ministries. In addition, he is a Fulbright scholar and was awarded a lecturing-research grant to southeast Asia. While on sabbatical, he served as a Senior Research Fellow of the Indian Film Research Project.

I DJ for [a Country Station] in California. Since it is a dual-frequency station, it's market is extensive! . . . . I love what I do. Not only do I get to plan events, but I make proposals, maintain equipment, production, programming, on-air staff and a slew of other jobs! I'ts true what you said in class that you have to be a jack of all trades in order to succeed in this business. Thank you [Dr. Schaefer] for all of your hard work and dedication in teaching me, for without my education, I would not be where I am today.
