Professional Experience: I have been a intern in the broadcast and print business’ as a intern at the Medford Mail Tribune, and KOBI Channel 5, a NBC affiliate. As well as a freelancing correspondent for the Gold Country Media family of newspapers. My Goals are to improve my writing skills as a reporter as a writer and learn how to correlate that into social media and to present it properly to the reader/viewer with the end goal to be a staff writer one day.
I created jmcdonaldmedia.com on the heels of my experience down in California as a running portfolio. I use social media (Facebook for the site, personal Twitter) to share stories, interact with communities and pick up story ideas along the way to improve as a writer in the field.
