Morgan Mullings of the Bay State Banner & Report For America On The Beginning of a Journalism Career

On this episode, Mark Simon talked to Bay State Banner reporter Morgan Mullings, a recent grad of St. John's, whose opportunity to begin her professional journalism career began via Report for America.

Morgan talked about her work with the Banner, and why it's important for a newspaper whose readership is geared to the African-American community to have a young black female writer. She shared her experience in past internships and what led her to apply to Report For America, which helps place aspiring journalists with news outlets to fill important needs in their coverage.

Morgan also talked about her passion for news literacy, how she comes up with story ideas, the different type of writing she's done, and gave tips for both applying to Report for America (applications for this year due January 31) and getting around Boston (spoiler: get a bike!).
