SOBCon 2012 Preview: Emily Harris, Journalism Accelerator
This week we’re previewing SOBCon 2012: Chicago. The event runs May 4-6, and if you’ll be in Chicago, there’s still time to register. We contacted some of the presenters and asked them to share their insights about their individual industries. The answers were so interesting to review and reveal that Liz Strauss and Terry St. Marie have put together an amazing group for this year’s event.
Today’s Q&A is with Emily Harris, Journalism Accelerator‘s editorial director. Emily has gathered stories all over the world. She reported for NPR from Europe, Afghanistan, Iraq and Washington DC and shared in NPRâ€™s 2005 Peabody award for coverage of Iraq. She grew up in Oregon, and returned in 2007 to help start Think Out Loud, an award-winning public affairs program on OPB, which she hosted for several years. My questions for Emily focus on the potential opportunities for journalists and how she’s made the most of her opportunities.
1. The future of journalism is much debated. What do you think will be required to be a successful journalist five years from now?
2. Joining Journalism Accelerator represented a transition moment for you. Whatâ€™s been the most exciting part of making that transition?
3. With so many opportunities to collaborate, how do you recommend people assess those opportunities to increase their chances at success?
