What was your first job as a journalist?
Radio newscaster, 1,000 watt daytime station in Minneapolis. I now have lights with that much power.
Have you ever used a typewriter?
Yes! An IBM Selectric (prior to Selectric II, even). And even a manual typewriter. But I loved the type balls.
How is social media changing news?
Immediacy. No curating. Blather. Outrageousness. Openness. Discussion. (Wait. No discussion. We are too polarized for that.)
