Ceremony planned

The Reynolds School of Journalism building at the University of Nevada, Reno, only 19 years old, has undergone a major renovation to adapt to new technology and will be “rededicated” on Aug. 23 at 2:30 p.m.

The school is named for the late Donald W. Reynolds, owner of numerous media properties, including many mostly small newspapers, a billboard company, television and radio stations. His Nevada holdings included the Nevada Appeal in Carson City, Las Vegas Review-Journal, KOLO television in Reno and KORK television in Las Vegas. In 1977, the Federal Communications Commission stripped Reynolds of his license for KORK because of fraudulent financial practices and lying about the fraud, forcing Reynolds to sell the station.
