Ten minutes with @journlaw – Nic Christensen (@nicchristensen) from Mumbrella

By MARK PEARSON

I’m teaching a subject called Online News Production at Griffith University this semester and we are featuring a range of industry guests – in person and via link.

Today I interviewed Nic Christensen, deputy editor at Mumbrella, about life on one of Australia’s most successful online startups.

In this Skype interview, Nic talks about his job at Mumbrella, introduces us to his colleagues including editor-in-chief Tim Burrowes, drops his laptop during the newsroom tour, and discusses multimedia reporting and employment prospects for journalism graduates.

Ten Minutes with @journlaw – Nic Christensen. YouTube video will start.

If you just want to see him drop his laptop, that’s at 2 mins 10 secs!

Nic’s an avid social media user in his reporting.
