I have the most unfortunate name in journalism.
Thank my unfortunate name and my unfortunately punny editors for Paige Views — the blog where Paige, the editor-in-chief of The Daily Tar Heel, tells you her views on things.
Here is where I’ll explain decisions we made — why did we choose that photo, why did we decide to write a story, why did we take a stand on a certain issue. I’ll ask for feedback from the community (Note: I’m always asking for feedback. Not just from the online commenters who’ve been on our site for so long they’re like family.) and I’ll tell readers about things they don’t get to see just by checking out dailytarheel.com or picking up a paper.
A little about me: I’m coming off of two years as the online editor, and I study graphic design in the journalism school as well as political science. I like digital things. I like social media. And I like to be present in the digital world. Sometimes, if I have any free time, I’ll pick up a great book and spend some time reading it. (And if I have even more free time, I’ll write a review for DTH Medium, our arts and entertainment blog, where they tend to make even more puns on my name.)
But above all, I love The Daily Tar Heel. I want to make it a better place — for readers, for staffers and for college media in general.
