Chris Ghanbari, a young professional I worked with at WFAA in Dallas last summer, is co-founding a new website aimed at providing a different angle of news coverage for the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. DFWReporting.com will aim to tell stories that might sometimes fall through the cracks amidst the wall-to-wall coverage of car chases and murders.
This team of young journalists comes from a variety of expertise areas, which will certainly be a strength of the operation. Ghanbari along with DFWReporting.com reporter Jessica Trober, who was most recently working with CW33 in Dallas, recently drove to Natchitoches to interview me for an upcoming story.
They are profiling myself as well as Katherine Lane, a fellow WFAA alum and recent hire at a station in Abilene. The piece explores the ups and downs of recent graduates entering the broadcast journalism profession. I was thoroughly impressed with their goals for the website and operation– I expect big things to come. DFWReporting.com is set to launch on July 22nd, so be sure to check it out then!
Here are links to the website and video of their graphics.
