Today in class, Amy Moritz from the Buffalo News came in and spoke about being a writer for news both yesterday and today.
She touched on topics as the technological differences and methods of reporting. With the implication of live blogging and Twitter, how we read news is so much easier. The changes in the internet helped bring more live and up to date news, as opposed to the old way of updating the news every morning.
She even talked about how with the use of Twitter, people can work their way around Public Relations people for many athletes. She talked about Tim Gram (?) and his relationship with former Miami Dolphins player, Ricky Williams, through Twitter. Amy said that Tim and Williams went out and meditated one time.
Overall, Amy was a great speaker. She told us some tricks of the trade and gave some people some ideas for what they can do in the future as a career.
