From the archives: Banish “if only”
We are sharing resources from the ONA archives throughout 2019, as we celebrate 20 years of inspiring innovation in journalism.
ONA16 Student Newsroom member Cara Lombardo — now a reporter at The Wall Street Journal — spoke with The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Greg Borowski about his best advice for the digital news industry. “Take ‘if only’ out of the newsroom conversation when it comes to using new platforms,” he said. “If no one has the skill, have someone learn.” Instead, he encourages newsrooms to replace “if only” with “What would it take?” That advice resonates more loudly each year as digital journalists continue to create and adopt new ways of delivering information to communities.
