Journalists in training
On Friday I'll spend the day with incoming Knight Ridder journalists, journalists who have recently graduated and are headed to internships and recent high school graduates who are now Knight Ridder scholars. I'll talk to them about the profession, my experience and how I got into a position to be the editor of the Times, a newspaper that is read by 450,000 East Bay residents. It's an event I look forward to. I enjoy discussing journalism, particularly as it relates to the 21st Century, and talking to journalists just beginning their careers. Journalism schools continue to see tremendous interest in the profession.
