I owe a lot of who I am to the City University of New York. I first became a reporter for the Lehman College newspaper, Meridian. I met my husband, then the editor-in-chief, on Meridian. And I made some friends for life at the paper as well. So, what could be more fitting after a truly wonderful career, one that has taken me across the country and around the globe and allowed me to witness history as it was being made, than to come back to New York to help a new generation of journalists get their start in this amazing business?
The answer: Not much.
Which is why I am thrilled to announce that, starting February 23, I will be the new director of career services at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. You can read all about it here.
I believe the correct response is: Woohoo!!!
