  1. Hi Stephen,
    I am a radio reporter working for German Public Radio. I am currently working on a story about the CUNY Entrepreneurial Journalism program and would like to know if you might be available for an interview, sometime after Tuesday next week.
    I can be reached at 718-902-6090 – but am currently out of the country, so gmail would be best.

  2. Hi Stephen,

    Impressive bio! (I am the same “Lana” who just wrote a comment on your Amanda Knox article.) You have a new fan out here in California. I like the fact that you worked at MTV on “creating news and factual programming geared toward college students”. With a daughter in college, I know there is a big need to target that audience. I do have to laugh a bit because many many years ago, I was one of those college students in my “own little world”. I was in college during the Iranian Hostage Crisis and I’m embarrassed to say I was not even aware of the story until a few years later! At the time, of course there was no internet and I was a focused engineering student. But I was still able to keep up on “Who shot J.R.” and do my fair share of partying!!

    Btw, I read your bio quickly and I am not a professional editor but 9th paragraph “Seamless even made the front page of Reddit and set many TMV records based on emails that I’ve composed” needs to be changed to 3rd person.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

    Now back to work for me…:-)
