Lindsey Lloyd – travelling the world, tackling the world:
Being a journalist these days is a daunting task.
There is fake news, ever-shrinking newsroom budgets, daunting digital developments, changing the news spectrum and the uncertainty of finding a full-time job – if ever.
But despite all those challenges, Lindsey Lloyd is plowing ahead into the turbulent world of journalism when she graduates from the journalism program at Langara College in Vancouver later this year.
This seasoned world traveller, hiker and lover of great food is ready – ready to make it – no matter the challenges she will face.
In this episode of Cool Conversations Lindsey Andrews talks to George Froehlich about:
Why travelling all over the world for more than three years has prepared her for the hurly burly world of journalism.
Why fake news is a great opportunity for journalists.
Her passion for storytelling – giving a voice to everyday people, their challenges, frustrations, and above all, their triumphs.
Why people are willing to pay for news despite all the free news on the internet.
Why journalists have to say goodbye to a steady full-time job.
Why working for a small news operation in a small town is a great career builder.
Why a journalist has to be on social media.
The connection between journalism and Vietnam, Tofino and Banff.
