My name is Victor Luckerson and I’m a practicing journalist and media manager. In June 2012 I began working as a business reporter for Time.com. My job has allowed me the opportunity to address a variety of topics ranging from the emergence of Big Data in the nonprofit sector to the benefits of taking a legitimate lunch break at the office. In particular I’ve focused on both technology and education and their intersections with the business world. I gained previous experience with a national publication during a summer internship with Sports Illustrated.
In May 2012 I graduated from the University of Alabama, where I was the editor-in-chief of the daily student newspaper, The Crimson White, for two years. The Crimson White is a 15,000-circulation paper published four days a week and is one of the largest newspapers in the state of Alabama, student or professional. Prior to being the editor of the CW, I launched an independent online news magazine at the University of Alabama called Changing Tides that addresses pressing campus issues through depth reporting and multimedia projects. Both became award-winning publications under my leadership.
Throughout my journalistic career I have been interested in bringing fresh perspectives, whether it’s in unique story ideas, brand new publications, or exciting new initiatives at long-standing institutions. I think the innovation going on today in the journalism industry makes it an incredibly exciting field that will continue to expand through video, audio, social media, alternative story forms and the written word.
