Welcome back! This week we had the pleasure of sitting down with our former Georgetown instructor and NPR.com’s amazing Digital Editor – Tanya Ballard Brown (aka T-Double-B). Tanya shares how her love for writing and journalism began, and how she found her way to NPR.
Last week was a traumatic time across the country after fatal shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota, followed by a police attack in Dallas that left both emotions and tensions running very high. We discuss how a major newsroom like NPR ensures balance in coverage during breaking news episode and why it is key for journalists to step back from it all when reporting on sensitive topics.
Millennial Pop Quiz time! See how many #Millennial questions Tanya gets right and wrong during our pop culture quiz. Thanks for listening!
This is The Millennial Hour.
