What was your first job as a journalist?

My first gig was in radio as the news director at my college radio station. I learned the importance of multimedia and setting a scene there.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

Email is preferred, so I can get to it at my leisure. Though if someone were enthusiastic enough to pick up a phone, I'd be more receptive.

What's your favorite social network?

Twitter. Hands down. Twitter gives journalists a live-reporting outlet that print journalists previously didn't have access to.
