Talon Editors interview Steve Vockrodt, KC Star Business Reporter

February 1, 2018

January 31, 2018 - The Talon Executive Team had the occasion to interview Steve Vovkrodt, Business Reporter for the KC Star.  The team was intrigued and impressed by the experiences he shared about his career and investigative reporting assignments with the Lawrence Journal World, the Pitch, and now the KC Star.  Mr. Vockrodt challenged the students to write stories that provide readers with something that they don’t and probably wouldn’t know.  It has been this pursuit that has made him a success in the field.  Mr. Vockrodt was also the featured guest speaker for Kyle Palmer’s Convergent Journalism class. If you get a chance google him and take a read!
