I think the thing that you look for in journalists is the same as I’ts always been. You look for a sense of curiosity, an appetite to understand about the world and a passion to communicate it. Now of course in order to be able to do those things in the future there’s a wider range of tools that people need to be able to master whether its video or its using various web software. But the absolute fundamentals are that you have got to be someone who wants to find out about the world and pass that along to other people.
