Biography

interactive news junkie. Love to test new platforms and figure out the intersection of news television and social platforms. #socialtv I call it #2WayNews

What was your first job as a journalist?

My first paid job was a morning anchor in MN - living a block from the station so I could trudge thru snowdrifts before the plows got going.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes! First job in Minnesota in '87 - but not for long. Still think we should keep one around for when all the computers crash!

How is social media changing news?

It's revolutionized the speed of gathering & spreading info. We can connect with our audience and build understanding and trust.
