What was your first job as a journalist?

Six week stint as a forward planning assistant at Scottish Television [expenses only] followed by reporter's job at Wigtown Free Press.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. It was a condition of contract for my first job at the Wigtown Free Press newspaper in 1994.

How is social media changing news?

Making it real time, inclusive & transparent but delivering challenges for resourcing and fact checking. Positive in my view.
