If you’re going to cover economics for The Wall Street Journal, this is a pretty interesting time to have that beat on that newspaper. And you can bet that Kelly Evans, a 2007 Washington and Lee alumna, is keeping plenty busy these days as an economics reporter for the Journal. Kelly’s byline is showing up often on stories about everything from global trade to retail sales — and, when those economic crises weren’t enough, she interviewed passengers of that U.S. Air jetliner that landed in the Hudson River earlier this month, too. But true to the W&L Department of Journalism and Mass Communication’s emphasis on the convergence of new media tools, you can also watch Kelly as a frequent contributor to the Journal’s online digital network. The Office of Career Services has posted one of Kelly’s videos from the fall on its site (scroll to the bottom of the page). But if you go to the Journal’s Video Center, you can find all of the videos that she’s done (do a search for her name), including the one below from Monday when she focused on corporate layoffs. Nowadays it seems you’ve arrived when you can get the “talking head” label, and Kelly’s got 110 images on the Web site TVHeads.com where you can cast a vote for her as your favorite “talking head.”
