Each Monday, we are posting a blog to help our readers get to know the media just a little bit better.
With a TWIST!
No, we aren’t posting story pitch tips or media lists, but instead great stories from the media themselves about their lives, their work and other little known facts! Think of it as your first “networking” opportunity of the week!
Today’s #MediaMonday comes to us from Christia Gibbons, long-time Tribune editor as well as an alum of the Phoenix Business Journal and Arizona Republic. Currently, Christia freelances for several publications statewide.
What do you want to tell the blogosphere about yourself today?
Christia: First, my deep, dark secret – I was a varsity cheerleader and a debutante in high school, and a fraternity sweetheart in college. I was also an Arizona highway patrol reserve officer for nearly two years out of Yuma. I wanted to be an editor since I was three-years-old. I’m journalistically proudest of a serial killer project I headed up in California. Because of my team’s great reporting and writing, the guy was caught and successfully prosecuted. And one last fun fact – my father, Frank Johnson, helped write the open meetings law in Arizona.
Thanks to Christia for being our #MediaMonday. If you are a member of the media or know a member of the media who wants to share a little something too, just click here and tell us all about it.
