Back to Convergence


Now with one semester of reporting under my belt, I am beginning the editing/producing portion of the MU Convergence sequence. I will start this semester working as an online convergence editor for Vox magazine and finish working with Discovery Tech. After my first week at Vox, I feel like this class should be called editing, producing and reporting again! Like last semester, I am pitching stories, reporting them, and editing and producing them.  The only difference now is I’m sitting in on multiple editors meetings a week. While the meetings take time, they’ve been a great way to see how a newsroom actually functions. Vox has a very different atmosphere in comparison to other Missouri news outlets where I’ve worked. Their reporting has a sort of edge and flavor that is not allowed in traditional newsrooms. This will be the first time I’ve worked in such a newsroom, can’t wait!
