REALLY formerl...

What was your first job as a journalist?

I was a newsreader for a wacky morning show on a top 40 radio station in Pullman, Washington.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. I learned to type on an IBM Selectric in Junior High.

How is social media changing news?

It gives people their own brand or channel. Everyone is a news provider now in that we all choose what stories we want to tell.
