Looking forward to the future of journalism

Welcome to John Tedesco’s journalism blog

John Tedesco reporter for the San Antonio Express-News

Hi, I’m a guy who works for that ink-covered relic called a “newspaper,” which you probably haven’t bothered to read if you’re my age or younger.

That’s too bad. Because as stodgy as newspapers can be, there are days when they live up to their promise and show us what’s really going on in the world.

Want some examples? Check out my blog for links to stories written by my colleagues at the San Antonio Express-News, the city’s daily newspaper.

This blog will include a “how we did it” section and resources for journalism students. And along the way, hopefully we’ll find some ways to keep keep watchdog journalism alive at a time when newspapers are struggling.

I want people to get their hands dirty reading their local ink-covered relic. Sometimes, it isn’t just a boring pile of paper.
