I worked on my first story at the Houston Chronicle, which wound up on the web and then got printed for today’s paper. It landed as the centerpiece for Pg 3 of the Biz section – a fine place to start I would say. Waste Management announced that their COO was leaving, so I had to cover that. I talked to their PR, used the terminal, looked at SEC filings, the whole deal. I was actually lucky enough to get to talk to the COO, or ex-COO, himself. It was very much like “24 Days,” but I doubt WM will come crumbling down anytime soon.
