The Jandoli Institute hosted a live Twitter Chat on Feb. 21 for aspiring and young journalists. Below are responses to a question from Richard Lee, the institute’s executuve director.
Haha! Love that…ummm bonas going to the NCAA tournament, covering rodeos in Montana, reporting in snow mounds taller than me…the list goes on.— Katie Tercek (@KTercek14News) February 21, 2020
Answer 1: met John Sebastian (Lovin’ Spoonful). Answer 2: wrote an investigative series that exposed a surgeon who performed unnecessary surgeries on mentally ill residents of a state psych center. They busted him. My best “J” moment. #JandoliChat https://t.co/G7HqpGdrN0— David K. (@redleader57) February 21, 2020
Just one!? I love the experiences that come with journalism. I’ve toured decaying floors of an aging courthouse, interviewed playground builders in knee-high mud, been chastised by politicians and traveled thousands of miles. “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” #JandoliChat https://t.co/Q6KGKQwqab— Whitney Downard (@WhitneyDownard) February 21, 2020
