What was your first job as a journalist?

I interned at Hispanic Link Weekly Report. My first non-internship job was as The Huntsville (Ala.) Times' Capitol Correspondent.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

I have, and I was terrible at it.

How is social media changing news?

It's speeding everything up and giving readers a bigger voice in stories. Fact-checking and criticism arrive immediately, not hours later.
