I’m Kelly Jasper, social media editor at The Augusta Chronicle in Augusta, Ga.
I believe in leveraging the best of what social media has to offer to help newspapers succeed in this digital world.
I believe in the power of local journalism and good, old-fashioned reporting.
I believe in telling stories.
I wrote about religion in the founding place of the Southern Baptist Convention for four years (as the faith and values reporter at The Augusta Chronicle). I worked as a cranky late-night breaking news reporter for another two years (The Daily News-Record of Harrisonburg, Va.). Before that, I was a features writer and photographer for Skyline Publications and the Shenandoah Valley Business Journal (also of Harrisonburg, Va.).
I am a graduate of James Madison University, where I studied journalism and political science. I am an Army brat with no hometown, a newlywed, and a recent convert to Southern cooking.
