My name is Deanne Winslett, and I have been chosen as the 2014-15 editor-in-chief of The Crimson White, the multimedia news organization of The University of Alabama. I joined The CW my freshman year as a contributing writer, and became a Staff Reporter for my sophomore year. My junior year, I operated as the Assistant Culture Editor. During my three years at The CW, the most valuable thing I’ve learned is the importance of getting started. There are opportunities at The CW for everyone, and we operate as a team – supporting one another as we learn.
At The CW, we value new perspectives in our newsroom and are dedicated to helping our staff members grow. The Crimson White welcomes applicants from all across campus, regardless of their year or major. I encourage you to explore the various roles our organization offers, and consider how you might be interested in joining The CW.
The Crimson White offers a valuable hands-on learning experience. Regardless of your course of study, being a part of The CW will teach you leadership and communication skills that will continue to benefit you after you graduate. Not only will you have the opportunity to improve your own skills and talents, but you will also be able to learn new and exciting skills through your position at The CW.
Be a watchdog for your community
At The Crimson White, we take our role as our community’s Fourth Estate seriously. We seek truth and report it. Our in-depth reporting of the past few years has reaffirmed our duty as the watchdog for this community, and we have been successful in this due to the dedication of the people on our team. Having new talent in our newsroom helps us toward this initiative.
