How is social media changing news?

It means those involved in producing content can't be passive, and the audience now has the tools to challenge our narratives.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

Being concise matters. Give me the two sentence summary up top. Make sure it's relevant not only to my beat but my readership, as well.

What tools and software do you use to do your job?

I do almost everything in Google Drive. I also use Illustrator and Photoshop.
