Albuquerque Biz First hires money and jobs reporter
Ron Davis has been hired as the money and jobs reporter at Albuquerque Business First.
Davis writes, “Exactly one month ago, I graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree from the renowned Missouri School of Journalism. This past semester, I was put to the test with an intense magazine-writing class and courses to enhance my knowledge in state government and business reporting. In addition to my class load, I was an assistant sports editor for the Columbia Missourian, a daily, community newspaper in the city. There were definitely times where I longed for the simpler days of summer, driving home with the Sandia Mountains ahead of me and ordering green chile on everything when I went out to eat.
“Although I had some long nights in the fall during my last semester as a student, I found the process very rewarding. Most of the stories I was reading involved sports, but sitting on the other side of the desk for the first time really opened my eyes about how reporters approach their jobs. If I can help a reporter make a story about a blowout win in a girls’ basketball game with maybe 10 people in the stands interesting to readers, I feel good about my chances to articulate something interesting about hirings and layoffs in Albuquerque for you.”
