From the Newsroom to the Classroom: Why I Left My Job as a Journalist
Posted: 8/2/2013 | By: Amy Wu | Poynter
In less than a month, after a 14-year career as a full-time reporter and nearly three years as a journalism lecturer, I will be a student again.
I never planned on moving from the newsroom to the classroom. I fell in love with newspapers in high school, where I became an avid contributor to my student paper. Starting in college, I interned at The Miami Herald, The Chicago Tribune and The San Francisco Chronicle, then worked at The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle and The Deal.
