DescriptionRobert Morris began his career in print journalism working for a string of weekly and daily newspapers before deciding he needed a change. “I liked journalism and I liked my job and I really liked the people I worked with but it seemed like such a long road to be a 28-year-old reporter watching the newspaper industry shrink” he says.
