Journalists shine light on their role

ThreeSixty Journalism student Safiya Mohamed found time during St. Paul Central High School’s spring break to interview three Twin Cities journalists about their profession. Safiya asked them to describe what they do, explain why their job is important and share advice they would give to a young, aspiring journalist.

The interviews with Star Tribune reporter Nicole Norfleet, Minnesota Public Radio reporter Brian Bakst and Fox 9 reporter Iris Perez were recorded at the studios of the St. Paul Neighborhood Network, a cable access station. Funding was provided by the Minnesota Society of Professional Journalists.
