When I signed up for this class, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into! And to make things more interesting this was my first class in my whole four and a half years that was on Friday! Surprisingly, I learned a lot from this class and will be taking some of the concepts… Continue reading I am Ready for the World!
If you you use Twitter on a regular basis, you probably know Philip Lewis, a front page editor for HuffPost. He has 91,000 followers. But he doesn’t have a social media degree.

So, I went on a field trip to Detroit with my media entrepreneurship class last week, and it was truly an enjoyable trip! We met some amazing people — and I learned that I knew nothing about the city I’ve spent my entire life in! When I graduate, I am making it my priority to… Continue reading Helloooooo Detroit!

For the life of me, I don’t see why someone would pay for local news when we already get it for free? In this class we are being… Continue reading Who’s Paying For That???

I typically don’t really see the evolution until I think back on how things were about three to four years ago when I was a freshman in high school. Yes, we had internet but It wasn’t nearly as effective… Continue reading Digital News Taking the World by Storm
When I think about media now, it reminds me of my 10-month-old nephew Titus. I am always running after him and just when I think I’ve got it under control he pops up with something else and I have to get up all over again! Journalism today is a whole different world than it was… Continue reading Journalism and Media…. the Game That Keeps You Guessing!
