What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Sr. Editor in Tallahassee:
"Keep up with new media."
The newspaper and assorted mass media are changing as rapidly as the technology that supports it. Be sure to keep up with those changes and maintain a network of friends and associates in the business. The days of the umbrella structure of newspapers that include and incubate talent are coming to an end. In many ways life in the mass media has become much less tolerant of people who don't produce. So be one who does.
