Gen X journalism PR heather anderson

Back in the 1980s, I was one of hundreds of thousands of college freshmen who chose journalism for a major. It’s important to note that back in those days, Gen X didn’t necessarily seek out meaningful careers like today’s millennials. Most of us wanted TransAms and credit cards instead.

Newspaper jobs didn’t pay much back then, certainly not enough for a new TransAm, but a news career was sexy. The first thing I ever knew about government was Watergate, and The Washington Post‘s Woodward and Bernstein were center stage in that drama.
