About me: What I cover and what I do
As a multimedia journalist I worked for the St. Joseph News Press a Fox 26 KNPN and NBC 21 KNPG affiliate, covering the Family, Food and Home & Garden section.
I was responsible for coming up with news worthy topics and tasked with shooting and editing my own video footage as well as taking stills to accompany all articles.
I was also tasked with coming up with enterprise stories, which tend to be more in depth, requiring heavier research and more sources. I was a contributing writer for the Josephine magazine, another platform associated with the St. Joseph News Press. I’m energetic, capable of multitasking and meeting tight deadlines.
As a freelance writer I’ve worked for publications such as the St. Louis American, Riverfront Times, Independent News, the Current News, Community News and currently the South Florida Times.
My background also includes working as an intern with Alive magazine, Sauce magazine and River Styx Literary magazine. I’m also a blogger-https://erica-vanburen.com/
