What are you most excited about?
I am most excited about the possibilities that being News Projects Editor, a new position, will create. My co-editor Peter Baugh and I are working to flesh out Campus Projects from a section to a department. By tackling the news side of Projects I will introduce more multimedia elements to stories on a regular basis. I’m excited about tackling the challenge of finding new ways to engage readers.
What do you hope to accomplish in your new position?
As News Projects Editor I hope to make multimedia elements the norm in The Maneater’s coverage. By incorporating more photo essays, videos, interactive graphics and things of like we can not only tell richer stories, but also begin to change the culture of the newsroom as we begin to package our stories both multimedia and online first.
