What was your first job as a journalist?

Aside internships in school, I was a fill-in reporter in Olympia, WA for the Northwest News Network. I am ever thankful for that break!

With personalized engagement. Please realize a radio report needs characters, scenes, and sounds, and not just figures and talking heads.
