The Post



Tomorrow night I start my new job as a reporter for The New York Post.

My role will be as a “runner,” which is basically an on-call breaking news reporter.

It’s different from what I have been doing for the past year at The Brooklyn Paper. Instead of finding and writing two stories a day, most of my job will be to get quotes and details from the scenes of breaking news events.

Here are a few stories I worked on during my three-day tryout a few weeks ago:

It’s a pretty awesome gig, and I am really excited to get started.

I also will be working on my own stories for the paper, so if you have any tips, you can always reach me by email at dan [at] dsmacleod.com.
