Managing editor, Evansville Courier & Press. Board member, Indiana APME. Board member, Hoosier State Press Association Open Records Committee.
I'm in the senior citizens club for the "new media" generation. I'm old enough that I worked with newspapers that did actual paste-ups on graph sheets, and young enough that I was in on the ground floor with the digital age of journalism.
Today, I'm part of a news organization that is committed to covering its community in a way that no one else can: Breaking news around the clock, in-depth watchdog journalism, features on local people and commentary on local issues. The Courier & Press staff is made up of people who care about their city and strive to be *the* local news and information resource for its residents.
Why journalism? Because no two days are ever alike, it's fun to be "in the know" and now, more than ever, it's crucial to be a reliable, accurate means of telling people what's going on in the world around them.
