What was your first job as a journalist?

Freelancing for my hometown paper, the Midland Daily News. I got to pitch longer stories and covered two townships and a school district.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yep. I was a volunteer at a retirement home (for six years!) and we had one in the activity room.

How is social media changing news?

Everyone can contribute to conversations, even from events closed to media, creating greater transparency.
