I cover sports for Jackson Newspapers in Ripley, WV. My main beat is with Ripley High School, covering all things Vikings. I occasionally branch out and cover happenings and people at Ravenswood High School, the only other high school in the county.

What was your first job as a journalist?

I freelanced doing local high school sports.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

What's a typewriter? Just kidding. But no, I haven't.

How is social media changing news?

Simple. It has become THE source for news.
