I’d like to introduce you to Laura McNamara. She’s the newest contributing editor to Domestic Fuel and other ZimmComm New Media news blogs. Laura is with me here in Indianapolis this week helping with our coverage of the Indy 500 and all events related to ethanol.
Laura spent the last nine months covering Missouri state poltics for a statewide radio network, The Missourinet. Before working at The Missourinet, Laura spent last summer working in Rome, where she mostly covered news from the Vatican. Her work at the television news agency, RomeReports, also included coverage of a Roman fashion show and up-and-coming European soccer stars. Laura earned her broadcast journalism degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia. While a student, Laura also worked as a television reporter and fill-in anchor for KOMU NewsChannel 8 in Columbia and as a radio reporter for Missouri Digital News out of the Capitol in Jefferson City. Laura wants to expand her reporting experience by covering events all over the world and we’re happy to be working with her. I think you’ll find reports from her here on Domestic Fuel from a variety of locations in coming months.
