Journalists

This is a project of the Spring 2017  History of American Journalism class in the School of Journalism at the University of Arizona in Tucson. It features oral histories of 15 Tucson-area journalists conducted by undergraduate and graduate students. They include broadcast reporters for Arizona Public Media, newspaper reporters, the head of the Arizona Daily Star‘s editorial page, photojournalists, a cartoonist, Borderlands authors, environmental journalists, sports journalists, and the founding publisher of Tucson Weekly and Edible Baja magazines. Each entry includes a brief overview of the journalist’s career, an audio interview, a photograph of the journalist, and links to his or her work. Professor Linda J. Lumsden supervised the project. Special thanks to digital journalist John de Dios for technical help.
