Aug 04, 2014

Today we introduce to you Melissa Nann Burke, transportation and government reporter with Delaware's News Journal. As you might deduce from her title, Melissa covers everything from local and state government to traffic and highway safety. In her own words, being a journalist comes down to being a "storyteller, watchdog, truth-teller." Check out her Muck Rack portfolio, where she showcases work such as "Guns in Delaware: Can local government officials keep firearms out of town halls?" (211 shares) and "Delaware's dangerous intersections" (3,058 impressions).

Remember: If you also want to be featured here, you should 1) set up your own journalist portfolio 2) get verified and 3) let us know by emailing Kirsten.
