Early in her career, veteran Bloomington newspaper editor Andrea Murray faced a choice that would define her professional existence: a high-profile gig at a major corporate newspaper, or return home to cover stories in her community. She followed her heart. Murray joined the staff of the Bloomington Herald-Times as a part-time copy editor in 1987 and retired in 2014 as Managing Editor, concluding a 27-year run at the paper. Last month Murray spoke to journalism students at IU as part of a panel discussion of women in media, where she reflected on the challenges and triumphs of a life dedicated to saying “yes” to her audience. Instructor and moderator Chad Carrothers and his class of J200 students are surprised to find out that Murray’s original intent was broadcast…but THAT class was full. That was veteran Bloomington newspaper editor Andrea Murray speaking to journalism students at IU earlier this year. IU instructor and former WFHB General Manager Chad Carrothers moderated that discussion. To hear Murray and three other local women journalists discuss the challenges women face in the newsroom, you can go to WFHB dot ORG.
