Final Project

Aaron Wright, an entertainment writer for the Norman Transcript, describes a day in the life of a reporter. You will hear her talk about her daily schedule and the impromptu life that her career requires her to lead. While I was interviewing her, she told me that to do her job, you need to be able to do more than just write. For example, uploading videos is a part of her job that she is required to do everyday. Debra Parker, Aaron's editor, says that Aaron is so successful because she is eager to take on assignments and she has the communication skills that allow people to feel comfortable while talking with her. After talking to Wright and Parker, I realized all the different skill sets a journalist needs to be a success.
