In this episode, host Sylvia Clubb interviews Susanne Fowler, a former senior staff editor for The New York Times, a University of Iowa School of Journalism graduate and a native of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Susanne is an alumna of Kennedy High School, where she worked on the newspaper, The Torch, and where she was inducted into Quill & Scroll.
As a journalist and teacher, Susanne has traveled the world to cover important stories.
She was an editor in the London and Paris offices of The New York Times from 2006 through 2017.
She began working in Paris at The International Herald Tribune, now the global edition of The New York Times, in 2006 as an editor of financial news. She transferred to London in 2013 to be part of The Times’s digital transition, editing business and international news.
Sylvia spoke with Susanne about her career as an international journalist — some of the interesting stories she’s told and people she’s interviewed — and the value of a strong journalism education and being a part of Quill and Scroll Honor Society for High School Journalists.
