Brent Andrews: Some of my Fave Journalists

Some of Brent Andrews’ favorite journalists are below (full post in extended entry section):

Joe Butler - OK, you have some funky advertiser who wants a story. Instead of writing some funky story, why not send Joe, who will actually get something interesting from his interview and have a real story for tomorrow’s paper. Joe could turn a softball assignment into a tear-jerker in a New York minute. Whenever I’m in Coeur d’Alene, I look Joe up. I just want to say hello, and be a small part of his life. Joe Butler’s one of the best writers around and I’m glad to know him.

Taryn Brodwater - You could be working on Watergate and Mike Feiler would hand you some press release from the Museum of North Idaho. Taryn could take it, rewrite it, and run with it and still have three or four stories of her own, and design the Press’s latest advertising tabloid, too. I don’t know who taught Taryn time management, but they done good, indeed.
