Personal Bio--->

Professional Profile

We’re going to re-write our bios so that they reflect a professional profile.  This is to eliminate personal information from the website and keep the content on a more professional level.

go to:

achievement. org and peruse the achiever gallery by selecting someone categorized as “broadcast journalist” or “journalist”. 

There’s lots of interesting information about each person. Feel free to peruse it, but pay special attention to the “profile” tab, as that’s what we’ll be working on today.

Look at several, then settle on a person of interest to you and be prepared to share with the class.
