Get motivated by the change that's happening in newsrooms, or get left behind. That was part of the conversation during our talk with Clinton Yates, local news editor for the Washington Post Express, writer for The Root DC and co-host of The 3 Wise Men podcast.
"Is there pressure to get along other platforms? I guess. But if you don't feel the pressure and you're in the business, I don't really know what you're there for," Yates said in the podcast recorded on Dec. 8.
He has the mindset of a multimedia journalist but came about it in a very organic way, by taking on each platform as his career branched off to new mediums.
Yates spoke to It's All Journalism about the challenges and rewards of being a multi-platform journalist.
