What was your first job as a journalist?

News editor at The News Record, the University of Cincinnati's independent student newspaper.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. I'm glad I'm too young to have experienced it in the work place.

How is social media changing news?

For one, it's diminishing the value of breaking news and emphasizing good research, analysis and context.
