Nancy Benson has been named the interim head of Illinois’ journalism department, the department announced via social media Friday.

Benson, a journalism professor, will replace the retiring Rich Martin.
This comes after the College of Media’s dean, Jan Slater, suddenly stepped down from her position for unknown reasons on May 12. Slater will remain in the department as a professor of advertising.
The college has yet to name an interim dean for the college.
