What was your first job as a journalist?

I was a Capitol Press Corps reporter for KLIK and KFRU in Jefferson City and Columbia, Mo.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. In high school. And I had an old Royal at home in my room to write poetry.

How is social media changing news?

The fine line between being first and being right gets even trickier, and you can blow your credibility as a journalist in a nanosecond.
