Name Ralph Nichols
Why are you joining the Washington News Council Community? WNC plays a critical and respected role in maintaining journalistic ethics and integrity in Washington state (just as Media Research Center is vital to accuracy in media in the US). In addition, when I was an editor at the Highline Times (Burien), I was the subject of a complaint. With agreement and assistance from John Hamer, I helped forge the first “mediated” settlement.
Tell us a bit about yourself Currently a reporter for 2 SW King County news blogs, I was a weekly newspaper editor before that. I’ve worked for daily newspapers in Washington, Alaska and Idaho, written political columns and managed a statehouse news bureau. In addition, I’ve done effective work as a writer and project manager in public relations and marketing.
