Honest, accurate & outspoken: Lenny's thoughts on this world of ours
Author: Lenny Cohen
The journalism “business” has changed — from standards to platforms to layoffs — along with the American public, and I’ve managed to survive somewhat on my own terms.
I started in 1994, becoming an award-winning and respected TV newscast producer.
Even better was creatively producing websites and social media, and serving as a station's digital media manager — writing news, creating graphics and getting evidence of growing my audience here in the nation's fourth largest market, Philadelphia.
I also taught first grade for eight years. My principal saw my class website and made me electronic gradebook manager to assist co-workers when we stopped using paper gradebooks.
In 2018, I took courses and earned the Google IT Support Professional Certificate.
In 2019, I was a freelance newspaper reporter, but enjoyed copy editing and reviving the publication’s social media even more.
That got me striking out on my own with a local news website to join the blog I created, designed and write.
Ask me about all the details.
I did drive Uber to make ends meet until I started as a customer service representative at one of the world’s largest web-hosting companies, with more than 8 million customer contracts and hosting more than 12 million domains.
With classroom and newsroom experience, I know how to prioritize, analyze and take the best course of action. Getting results means attention to detail, following through and following up.
