TCU names College of Communication after Schieffer

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Texas Christian University has bestowed another laurel upon its star journalism alumnus.

TCU trustees voted Friday to rename its College of Communications the Schieffer College of Communications, effective immediately, for CBS News Chief Washington Correspondent Bob Schieffer.

The host of "Face the Nation" is a 1959 graduate of the TCU journalism school. He was a reporter at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and an anchor at what is now KXAS-TV of Fort Worth and Dallas before moving on to CBS News.

In 2004, TCU named its journalism school the Schieffer School of Journalism. The journalism school will retain that name in the Schieffer College of Communication.
