What does ‘following’ a reporter actually mean?

September 21, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Q: When you mention “follow a reporter,” are we actually going with them to get a lead on a story a few times? Or is it only for an interview?  I know we have to read and keep up with their news coverage, but is the in-person interview the only in-person thing that we will be doing with them?  Is there anything else that I should let my reporter know that we will be doing together as I “follow” her?

A: No need to actually go with them on a story, despite how cool that would be. It’s something you *could* ask about, but in most circumstances, I would suggest sticking with only the short, in-person interview after you’ve been following her/his work for most of the semester. That will be challenging enough.
