Special thanks today to my first USAT boss+mentor, Jody Brannon.
I am indeed still getting e-mail here. Sorry I didn’t a chance to get back to you earlier; work was busy today. Anyway, how are you? I’m calling/writing to reconnect as well as get your thoughts on a couple USATODAY.com job openings.
… I got to wondering about the Assistant Life Editor and Assistant News Director positions. What does “producing” mean at USA Today? Is the Assistant Life Editor job similar to assistant producing at Post.com? About the Assistant News Director role, how much journalism experience is necessary? Are the breaking news and creative aspects of that job as terrific as they sound? These jobs could be years out of my reach for all I know, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to find out the details. New media and the online-print junction excite me more than ever these days.
Thank you for taking a chance on me! (And then making me stay!)
