Editor’s Discernment

Judah Duke

A lot can happen in 35 years; it’s a long time. Enough time for The Ticker’s business section to reach the hard-won standard of business news reporting inherent in every issue, including the one you’re reading today.

Former Business Editor Caryl Anne Francia, who took the reins of the section in my stead for The Ticker’s first winter issue, wrote a comprehensive letter about the business section’s history. Read it here.

Like many before me, I took on the business section feeling unprepared by way of business qualifications and journalistic experience. I’ve had many challenges, not limited to a topic email that was sent to the spam folder of nearly all on my mailing list for this semester’s first issue.

But everyone on The Ticker’s staff, from the editor-in-chief to the copyeditors, helped make this anniversary year possible for the section.

I mention both the past and present staff’s resolved support less to throw them a bone than to acknowledge a critical element to the success of the section, and to the paper at large.

It’s my reason for telling students why they should write for The Ticker. Everyone supports one another not only for the interest of professional development and experience but to add value to the paper as a standalone outlet.

As Caryl Anne had mentioned, business can be a difficult section to find eager writers for. It’s Baruch — everyone has something else they’re doing on top of classes, whether working another job, internship, research project or their own business.

But wedged between the assertions of disgruntled bearcats and the reviews of popular albums, usually on page eight, are a few pages I’m proud to have had a small part in.

So if you’ve been on staff at The Ticker, thank you for your support; if you’ve written for it, I encourage you to keep at it, and if you’re interested, my advice is to give it a shot, reach out and let us know what you’re passionate about covering.

That’s all for now — thank you for reading.
