As a multimedia journalist at ABC/FOX affiliated TV stations in Springfield, Illinois, Jordan Elder has covered a variety of local stories. Elder talks about what she likes about being a ‘one-man-band’; plus how she writes and reports, especially when it comes to making a visually poor story more engaging.
“It feels like we have kind of the biggest hand in our work,” Elder said about reporting as an MMJ.
Elder got her start in news during the pandemic. She talks about that experience after graduating from the Walter Cronkite School of Mass Communication at Arizona State University. She is originally from Kansas City.
Margaret Larkin interviewed Elder via Zoom.
