What was your first job as a journalist?

Regional TV reporter

It's adding urgency to getting the news 'out there' (but one has to be careful to not get ahead of the facts). And the feedback is valuable.

What does it mean to be a journalist?

Certainly to get to the truth. Then to present it so that its importance registers. A mix of psychology, history and entertainment.
