@NBTJoe Hi Joe and Conor, Amy here from CNN (which I am sure you could have ascertained). I can't overstate my fandom. But I would love to chat with you boys when you're in ATL. Follow me back so I can slide up in your DM! :) @NBTConor
Shout out to my girl @lindseyvonn who I am often told I favour. Comparisons that unfortunately don’t extend to my slalom skills. Go get that gold, girl ⛷🚩🥇 #PyongChang2018 https://t.co/7ooAfhh88y
Three of his daughters were abused by #Nassar, a man he calls a "demon", so can you really blame this dad for trying to attack him in the courtroom? I'm just surprised it didn't happen earlier @CNN  https://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2018/02/02/larry-nassar-sentencing-dad-court-room.cnn

What was your first job as a journalist?

A freelance reporter at WIN news in Canberra. I pinched myself every day I was asked to come in.

How is social media changing news?

Crowd sourcing stories has never been easier, but I believe disseminating our content increases our TV brand, rather than detracts from it.

What does it mean to be a journalist?

I'm idealistic about this. I believe we act as the forth estate, I believe we are watchdogs, humanitarians and propagators of truth.
