What's the secret to a great interview? A lot of preparation, says WGN reporter and anchor Lourdes Duarte. Journalism students in Carol Marin
and Don Moseley's class dug deep for great questions before meeting with Duarte, a 1999 graduate of the College of Communicaton, and Dean Baquet, executive editor of the The New York Times. Baquet and Duarte did not disappoint with their candid answers on the state of journalism, how to make mistakes (it's going to happen, just own up to them), and their favorite parts of their jobs. Later that day, Duarte and Baquet received awards from the
Center for Journalism Integrity and Excellence for work that
embodies the highest principles of journalism, including truth, accuracy,
fairness and context.
