As a former broadcast journalist, I always seek out the real story.

What is at the heart of an issue, a success, or a stalemate situation? My journalistic instinct and skills have served me very well throughout my career but in particular in my work as a public sector marketing coach, consultant, and trainer. 

When you think like a journalist you are considering: 

  1. What’s in the public interest?
  2. Where’s the source of the truth?
  3. Dissemination of the story

  • > 7 digital journalism tactics that public sector marketing pros should employ in their communications strategy 
  • > I interview Glen Mulcahy, a mobile journalism (MoJo) expert who shares his insights into what mobile content we should be creating for the greatest online impact

The skills I learned and practiced as a journalist has served me well. I can see the story from all angles and I know how to craft a story that engages and excites the public. It's also useful that I know how to think like a journalist while working as a PR or social media consultant. I can see so many similarities now between the work I did as a broadcast journalist to my role as a digital marketing consultant and so this episode goes deeper into these themes.
