After we announced the creation of Chalkbeat a few weeks ago, we promised we would continue to give you updates on what’s going on behind the scenes. Today, we want to introduce you to Chalkbeat New York’s bureau chief Philissa Cramer.
Many of you already know Philissa, who has been with GothamSchools since it launched in 2008, so consider this a reintroduction.
In this interview (that Philissa was kind enough to do despite being very busy helping our new bureau chief in Tennessee), Philissa talks about why she’s excited about GothamSchools becoming Chalkbeat New York and how readers can help her reporting team on their “focus area” reporting topics.
Also, get to know our other bureau chiefs by checking out their interviews here:
