I’m super proud to introduce Election Day 2012, the NYU Business and Economic reporting class’s election day coverage. This online publication looks at several angles of today’s election, from small business and policy to Hurricane Sandy’s effects and unemployment.
As deputy editor of this publication, I was able to help my classmates by giving advice and feedback on their story pitches and edit the stories as they came in. My classmates were on the ground in all five boroughs of New York City, filing stories throughout the day. Their hard work paid off; the Election Day 2012 publication came out in terrific form, and has garnered more than 2,000 hits to date, including about 1,600 on the days surrounding Election Day.
