What was your first job as a journalist?
I was a staff writer for a weekly newspaper in suburban Atlanta. I covered local government, schools, public safety and business.
Have you ever used a typewriter?
I've still got an old IBM Selectric and a dried-up bottle of White Out that I may donate to the Newseum.
How is social media changing news?
The ability to directly target readers, and to get rapid feedback, story ideas and breaking news tips from them, has been a great benefit.
