People involved in public media share how they wade through the digital news deluge. This month we spoke with Kirk Siegler, reporter for NPR.  Kirk participated in our April 2012 Knight Training when he was a reporter for KUNC in Colorado.

NPR reporter Kirk Siegler used to think Twitter was a "huge messy throw-up of something that didn't make a whole lot of sense." Then came the summer of 2012.

Siegler, who recently left member station KUNC for a new position at NPR, shared how he went from Twitter skeptic to Twitter user during that summer and answered questions from other reporters in a recent webinar. Read below for highlights, the video and slides.
