“From newspaper to news organization,” a few words with Katherine Ellis, Editor in Chief @TheChrony
Its no wonder Katherine found a niche at the Chronicle. She didn’t become an editor in the traditional way. She went from night owl to early bird. She has been a writer since her first word, and her love for the written word had her editing copy long before she got to the newsroom.
“Before I could even write, I felt like I was writing,” said Katherine. “I understood the concept, but I just didn’t know how, but that wasn’t going to stop me from pretending I could.”
Despite her quiet confidence, it was exciting to hear Katherine describe how Chronicle staff once out-scooped the pros. On the job for only a year, her vision for student news paints a bright future for those seeking real-world experience.
