“Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No…” — It’s News Girl! That’s right ladies and gentlemen, there is a new superhero in town and I am working to bring you the behind-the-scenes action of the newsroom.
Welcome to my weekly column! The purpose of this column is to update you, the readers, about what takes place in and around our student-run newspaper.
As our reporters get ready for the next issue I will be writing exposés on our staff, writers, and anyone involved in the publication of The Globe.
I will also be reporting on the events that our students and staff members are invited to attend. My goal is to provide an in-depth understanding of what our writers and staff members do and what it takes to get our paper to print each week.
Our staff is often invited to outside events hosted by various news and media organizations, such as the Deseret Management Corporation’s Journalism and Media Symposium, which was held on Friday, Sept. 26.
A portion of that symposium included lectures on both journalism and digital media management, as well as a brief surprise introduction to Harry Smith, who is currently working for NBC News.
This past Monday, Oct. 6, our staff also attended “Rather Intriguing: A Q&A with a witness to history Dan Rather.”
Dan Rather is a former news anchor from the “CBS Evening News” and has contributed to many media publications throughout his career.
I hope that this column will portray the interesting and exciting opportunities that our staff benefits from, and showcase the hard work that we put into our publication.
I also aim to inspire interest amongst any hopeful writers, editors, graphic artists, or anyone else interested in media production to come and take a glance or participate in The Globe.
“The never ending battle for truth, justice, and the American way.”
