Featured journalist: Meredith Rodriguez
Today's featured journalist is Meredith Rodriguez, a reporter with the Chicago Tribune. A graduate of Pepperdine, she's also worked with the Kansas City Star and in Shanghai. She's also trilingual, as she can speak Spanish and "can get by in Mandarin." Props for that!
Here's a sampling of the many beats she's covered: minority issues, features, business news, breaking news, and, understandably -- China. In her own words, she explains her eclectic coverage in this way: "I love the thrill of the breaking news story, but I also love great storytelling."
