Ryan Collins has joined the Springfield Daily Citizen to cover business and economic development.

He writes, “My managing editor, Rance Burger, told me to report business stories from the perspective of the consumer, reinforced with the non-profit’s mission to be a catalyst for good in informing the community. With an aspiration as admirable as it is unique, I promise to do my best to cover the ever-expanding neighborhood we once again share in calling home.

“After years studying business journalism in college under distinguished professors like Randall Smith, founder of the online publication Missouri Business Alert, and Martha Steffens, the endowed chair of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, I knew the basics of a good business story. Later, internships at outlets like the St. Louis Business Journal and Politico-E.U. sculpted me to deliver economic news daily.

“I’m lucky enough to have spent countless hours at a Bloomberg desk, under the eyes of impressive editors like Joe Carroll, Houston Bloomberg Bureau Chief and a well-respected and established news voice on everything in the energy sector, and Lynn Doan, a steadfast Bloomberg reporter-turned-editor who currently oversees the Technology Team in Europe and the U.S. East.”
