What was your first job as a journalist?
First job was covering high school sports and writing enterprise at the Austin American-Statesman in Texas (2000). Wow, I'm showing my age!
How is social media changing news?
Community journalism has become increasingly a part of society; confirming news has become second fiddle to getting it out there first.
What does it mean to be a journalist?
Someone who doesn't accept no - well, at least not the first time. Someone who puts his/her ego aside to be a sometimes-unpopular messenger.
