Liked the music! These events with a slide and a podium are hard to work with from a visual perspective, but you made the best of it I think. I might add a little more description here on YouTube that tells people more about the video.

Our contempt for Congress grows all the time, and this is just one reason why:

Mobile is the future of news--if we can figure out how to monetize it. I think the ability to geo-target advertising has huge potential. All we need is that killer ad app.

Story
Introduction
I am an assistant professor of journalism at the University of Memphis, where I do research on social media as well as newspapers’ efforts to grapple with changes to newsroom structure, culture, and daily routines in the digital age.

I also teach undergraduate and graduate courses in journalism and serve as the director of the Teen Appeal, a citywide high school newspaper. I recently developed new courses in social media for journalists and also teach reporting and mass communication theory.

Before returning to academia, I managed the traveling curriculum program of the Committee of Concerned Journalists for three years, going to newspapers of all sizes across the United States to discuss how journalists could do a better job of upholding their values in their daily work. Our workshops were based on the principles articulated in the book Elements of Journalism by CCJ Chairmen Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel. This experience was invaluable and gave me a bird’s eye view of what is happening in the newspaper industry today.

I’ve also spent time working in the newsroom myself, as a reporter for the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram in Wisconsin, an intern at the Philadelphia Inquirer, an associate newsletter editor covering policy developments on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, and, most recently, as an assistant city editor at the Columbia Missourian.

I received my PhD from the University of Missouri, where I had the opportunity to study with the director of the Center for the Study of Organizational Change and learn some lessons from outside our field relevant to challenges facing journalism today. I recieved my MA in communication from the Annenberg School at the University of Pennsylvania and my BA in journalism and biological aspects of conservation from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in the state where I was born and raised.

In my almost non-existent free time, I enjoy running, traveling, yoga, Packer football, and a cold domestic macrobrew, or three. I live in Midtown Memphis with my husband, Grant, who is also a journalist, and our two unruly but lovable labradors.
