What was your first job as a journalist?

As a paid journalist, it was when I wrote about city politics for $20 a story for the Montebello News in Southern California.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. Both manual and electric. But not in years.

Long form journalism is more rare. Plus, we're accustomed to alerts and notifications on our mobile devices more so than reading the news.
