Poynter Institute: Bobby Blanchard is a ‘big learn-by-doing person’ – and he’s done a lot

A current senior at the University of Texas at Austin, Blanchard has worked more gigs in his past four years than most people do in their lifetimes. At the Daily Texan, he has served as an online news editor, podcast host, copy editor, life & arts staff writer, senior reporter, general reporter, and senior designer. He’s also worked as a news intern at KUT Radio, a summer editorial intern at the Houston Chronicle, and is currently on a year-long reporting internship at the Texas Tribune.
