ABOUT THE BOOK:
This true story walks the reader through the journalism career of “Alex Burk” – from her idealistic childhood dream of becoming a reporter, to her career as a young working journalist, and finally to the disappointing, abrupt ending of her work due to sweeping changes in the news industry at the dawn of the Digital Age.
The reader will find humor as well as shocking, true details about the demise of the (print) newspaper industry and lowering of standards in the journalism field, which ultimately prompted her to leave a job she loved. This memoir shows how technology impacted the career of one reporter and takes a hard, inside look at how changes in newsroom operations are harming the public as a whole.
