What was your first job as a journalist?
I started as the City Hall Reporter for the Galion (Ohio) Enquirer the week after leaving college. We wrote, edited and laid out the paper.
Have you ever used a typewriter?
Had a whole collection of them when I was younger, from an antique Blickensderfer to a workhorse Remington to the dreamy IBM Selectric.
How is social media changing news?
Forces journalism to be more conversational and comprehensible, which is good. Adds rumor-busting time to our to-do lists, which can be bad.
