For Me, Where It All Began

I started my newspaper career at this paper (see below), in Sept. 1998. At that point, the Morning Call, was owned by a prominent family, the Millers. The funny thing is, I told the managing editor I wanted to be a media critic, and he told me that was a great ambition, but first I needed to learn the newspaper business. For two years, I covered courts, crime, fires, plane crashes, school boards, and everything else a nasty night editor can throw at a rookie reporter.

I eventually left the Morning Call to become a media critic at The Everett Herald (right outside Seattle). I still hold fond memories of the Morning Call and am glad to see they are embracing the 21st Century.
