I’m Ryan Denham, a reporter at The Pantagraph – the newspaper, not the machine used to make life-size toy versions of Kris Kringle in the film “The Santa Clause 2.” (True story.)
How do you walk the talk re: social media?
Using Twitter, Facebook, etc. to deepen my source base and reporting, and to help curate a world full of news for a local audience.
What one practical tip can you recommend regarding the use of social media?
Don’t fake it. I think LinkedIn is stupid, so I don’t play around in there. I think Twitter is an unmatched, must-read local news feed, so I dive in.
What do you think is the perfect age?
As a lover of craft beer (and the occasional not-so-craft beer) and all things Vegas, I’d have to say age 21 is as good as it gets.
What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Entertainment news. I frequent a steady rotation of blogs/news sites devoted to movie and TV projects in development, the crown jewel being Finke’s deadline.com.
What are you really good at?
Name one thing you will never understand.
Why anyone would buy an e-reader when iPads exist.
Share something on your mind lately.
My wife and I just got a puppy (see photo). I’m wondering if she’ll poop in our bedroom tonight.
