What was your first job as a journalist?
I started young - in high school - as a local reporter (and anchor) for our local cable access weekly TV show in Columbus, Indiana.
Have you ever used a typewriter?
Of course! I took my writing test to become a Video Journalist on one in the CNN Chicago Bureau.
How is social media changing news?
There is no question we have had to adapt our thinking and our practices in the digital age. But I hope I am not naive in thinking that the As journalists, we have wonderful new social media tools in our arsenal, but we still have our jobs to do. A 140-character tweet cannot replace our heartbreaking reporting from Nigeria on the missing girls or on-the-ground reporting on the impact of the civil war in Homs, Syria.
