The panelists were:
Lindsey Anderson, who covers education and regional issues for the Las Cruces Sun-News and often juggles social media and Web duties too. She graduated from American University in Washington, D.C. and has a rather expensive travel addiction.
Trip Jennings, the executive director of New Mexico In Depth. He is an award-winning veteran journalist who has worked at newspapers across the nation, including in California, Connecticut and Georgia. Besides working at the Albuquerque Journal and Santa Fe New Mexican, Jennings was part of a team that started the New Mexico Independent, an influential online newspaper.
Jolie McCullough, the web designer/developer and previous web editor for the Albuquerque Journal. She led the redesign of ABQJournal.com to utilize responsive design in 2013, a feat that landed her as a finalist for the national Editor & Publisher EPPY award for best overall website design. Currently, Jolie works on creating interactives and web packages to enhance Journal stories, along with fulfilling any design and development needs for the Albuquerque Journal and its partners. As web editor in 2012, she managed the content of the website, wrote breaking news articles and managed the Journal’s social media accounts and all of its digital products.
Jolie grew up around Albuquerque, and graduated as top of her class from Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in 2010. After college, she moved back to Albuquerque and began working for the Journal. Aside from being an internet enthusiast, she loves spending time with her toddler niece and infant nephew and discussing or watching anything about dinosaurs. Follow her on Twitter at @jsmccullou.
Lucas Peerman, the digital editor for the Las Cruces Sun-News. He manages the newspaper’s social media accounts and is tasked with implementing a digital-first mentality across the newsroom. Lucas is currently president of the board of New Mexico In Depth. After receiving his journalism degree from New Mexico State University, Lucas completed a Dow Jones internship with the Boston Globe, followed by a stint on the Santa Fe New Mexican copy desk. He returned to his hometown, Las Cruces, in late 2004 as editor of Pulse, the entertainment magazine of the Las Cruces Sun-News. Three years ago, in effort at personal branding, Lucas learned how to tie a tie and assumed the twitter handle @LittleGuyInATie. He should’ve gone with @LittleGuyInBermudaShortsandSandals.
