What was your first job as a journalist?
My first full-time job: reporter for the "Hartford Neighborhoods" page of The Hartford Courant. Two stories a day, one brief, one photo.
Have you ever used a typewriter?
Yes. My parents owned a big, heavy Underwood with keys that would jam. The inky mess taught me how to use Wite-out and edit carefully.
How is social media changing news?
Constant connection means immediate and ongoing discovery, delivery, correction and participation.
