Joanne Lipman, Senior Vice President and Chief Content Officer for Gannett, always wanted to be a journalist. Inspired by the book Harriett the Spy when she was seven years old, Joanne would carry her notebook everywhere, determined to launch a career in media. “I first thought about TV or radio but I loved the immediacy of news, reporting and writing,” she says. In college, she interned with the Saturday Review magazine, the Home News Tribune (now a Gannett property) in New Jersey and The Wall Street Journal. Her wide-ranging career as journalist, editor-in-chief and author places her in a unique position to see print media and all of its possibilities.
