John Walsh and Dr. DeCinque

John E. Walsh ’65, best known for his TV series America’s Most Wanted, visited the Auburn Campus last month. Many took advantage of the visit for a “photo opportunity.” He met with Interim President Dr. DeCinque and toured the Telcom Department with Professor Steve Keeler, Humanities & Communications Division Chair; as well as other parts of campus with his brother Joseph Walsh ’78, who is an instructor at CCC.

Students not only enjoyed the photo ops, but appreciated hearing about John’s experiences as a writer, developer, and TV producer. He freely shared advice and experiences with students and faculty. While interviewed by Caleb Slater, CCC student and associate editor of the Collegian, Mr. Walsh shared that his television show helped with capturing 1,200 suspects, including individuals on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list during its 25-year run. He now has a new television series, The Hunt with John Walsh, on CNN.
