What was your first job as a journalist?
Editor of five shopper papers, all put to bed on one day. I tried to make sure each had real stories.
Have you ever used a typewriter?
Yes. Manual. Thought I'd died and gone to heaven when I got an IBM Selectric.
How is social media changing news?
It has made news: accessible, faster, shallower and less responsible. In other words, a mixed bag.
