What Next? Local Journalists Move On
"There's a lot of wailing in journalism right now. I want to show people that there is a future, even if it's not working at a newspaper," explained Chrys Wu (via IM), a journoblogger at Ricochet, about the recent spate of layoffs, especially the LA Times. She's started a list of what Los Angeles area journalists are doing after the print life. "The core skills of journalism are the same, but the job is evolving. I want to show the people working in the business are too." For example, assistant sports editor Alex Kimball becomes senior editor covering the NFL at ESPN.com.
