Telling a story in voices

A “newspaper” guy by journalistic background, Tim Thornton does a nice radio  job of blending interviews to create this two-minute profile of a retiring  Radford University professor:

I’m saving that link here for my fall classes. I’ll also show his Thornton’s Work blog to students as a “portfolio” example of how to preserve their own work as their careers transition from medium to medium. (Or from “rare” to “medium” to “well done,” for that matter.)

I only wish Tim had worked a little of his own banjo playing into the background for a full “multimedia” approach!

mild-mannered reporter who fell deeper into computers and the Web during three trips through graduate school in the 1980s and 1990s, then began teaching journalism, media studies and Web production, most recently as a faculty member at Radford University.
