I am an assistant professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. In Fall 2023, I will start as an Assistant Professor at the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism. My research interests focus on local news, journalism studies, rural media environments, rural broadband, news audiences, news deserts, social media and its role in journalism and society and the value of news in everyday life. I have research published in peer-reviewed journals New Media & Society, Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, Journalism (2), Journalism Studies, Digital Journalism (2), Mass Communication and Society, Journalism Practice, and Journal of Communication Inquiry. Previously, I worked in the journalism industry for more than 20 years, including time as a senior editor at the Houston Chronicle and as a regional editor-in-chief in Central Virginia.
