A day in amateur reporting
By Emma McIntosh and Lisa Cumming
Lisa Cumming and Emma McIntosh, two first-year journalism students at Ryerson University, got their first taste of breaking news reporting as they dashed to City Hall to cover Rob Ford’s withdrawal from Toronto mayoral race. Here’s how it happened:
Lisa Cumming is a Toronto native who enjoys writing, reading, and skiing. She can often be found scouring Queen Street West and Kensington Market for eclectic trinkets.
Emma McIntosh is a native Canadian who spent the last six years in Seattle, and three years before that in Davis, California. When she’s not committing acts of journalism, she can often be found somewhere pretty with a book.
