Why I'm a Journalist : Personal Stories from Those Who Cover the News Paperback / softback

Edited by Aaron Chimbel



Why be a journalist? It can be a difficult job with long hours, hard work and an uncertain future.

Journalists face relentless criticism and an industry in transition.

Aaron Chimbel has put together a collection of essays from working journalists who answer the question - why be a journalist? - with their personal stories of coming up, toiling in the field and writing important, career-defining stories.

These journalists come from different platforms, beats and locations, offering varying accounts of the travails and rewards of being a working journalist across changing landscapes and timelines.

The essays in Why I'm a Journalist offer encouragement and wisdom about the path to being a reporter, a broadcaster, an editor or a media professional.

This is a collection for students interested in the field, early upstarts engaged with building their careers and seasoned pros looking to learn from their colleagues.
