What was your first job as a journalist?

Intern at my home county's newspaper, the Livingston County Daily Press and Argus in Howell, Michigan

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes - one of my best friends had one in elementary school and we would play "journalist" on it.

How is social media changing news?

It's making both information and misinformation far easier to spread.
