What was your first job as a journalist?
I started off in sports, working for local newspapers in Western New York. My first real job was at the Rochester, N.Y. Democrat & Chronicle.
What does it mean to be a journalist?
To serve the public, hold public leaders accountable, provide timely information, tell compelling stories, and inform/entertain.
What's your favorite social network?
Twitter is my favorite because it's so tightly-connected to the news these days, but it's close. I love Facebook too.
