We’ve witnessed the downsizing of newsrooms throughout the United States. How has life as a journalist changed at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and with the industry in general?
“The business has changed, but the way we approach journalism hasn’t changed much. We have more tools with social media, but it’s still all about telling a good story and telling it in accurately.”
“You can obviously see a stronger local aim with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and as a newspaper, we’ve gone back to focusing on our watchdog roots. It’s a logical step in an era when information is easily accessible. It becomes our job to keep track of our own back yard and in my case, as a features reporter, to help people navigate life here in the Milwaukee area.”
