Amy Wang (ARTS 1990), editor at the Oregonian, our local Pulitzer-prize winning newspaper, will speak about the challenges the paper has faced in the current news-rich environment. Among the topics she will address via Zoom:
– What is The Oregonian/OregonLive? Hint: Not just a newspaper. It is a multiplatform media company and allocates its resources for coverage accordingly.
– How this affected how they responded to the pandemic
– How they are covering George Floyd’s death and the subsequent protests.

Amy’s journalism career started when she joined the staff of The Cornell Daily Sun as a second-semester freshman. She stayed with The Sun through graduation, ending her stint there as the arts and entertainment editor. Following a post-graduation internship at The Boston Globe, she worked at the Observer-Dispatch in Utica, N.Y., and The Philadelphia Inquirer. She took a year off from working to earn a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. She moved west in 1997 to join the staff of The Oregonian, where she has held numerous newsroom positions. Her current role is newsletters and special projects editor; she is also a member of the editorial board. She is also a longtime member of the Asian American Journalists Association, currently serving as co-president of its Portland chapter.
