Managing Editor, College Media Review
It’s time for the news meeting, and the story ideas from the college journalists are lackluster.
“There’s not a lot going on” seems to be the prevailing sentiment.
But, of course, more seasoned journalists would say, “There is always something going on and stories to be told.”
Reimold challenges journalists to look below the surface of stories and brainstorm ideas for new coverage—and provides hundreds of ideas from multiple sources in “Journalism of Ideas: Brainstorming, Developing, and Selling Stories in the Digital Age” (Routledge, 2013).
