Video interview on talents needed for journalists

In March I was on a panel in Huesca, Spain, on the training needs of journalists. Here is a four-minute video on that subject.

The interviewer wants to know first about the fact that in Europe there are no journalism majors, only communication majors. I told her a good model is to study liberal arts and then get a master´s in journalism.

Then she asks about journalists who have no university training. I said a person doesn´t need a degree to be an excellent journalist, just certain qualities of curiosity, the need to get to the bottom of things.
