What was your first job as a journalist?

As a news and business general assignment reporter for a metro Atlanta weekly, making $165 a week.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes, many times. I started out using a manual typewriter, and then an IBM Selectric. I have a cast-iron, 1910 typewriter in my office.

How is social media changing news?

We're living in a real time environment, in which everyone thinks they can be a journalist. This is not necessarily for the better.
