Hi, I’m Cassidy Ritter! I recently graduated from the University of Kansas where I studied journalism with a double minor in business and global studies. I have three years of reporting and social media experience under my belt. The majority of my reporting consists of news, business and features, while my social media experience has been primarily with small businesses. I’ve worked for companies in Australia, Colorado, Kansas and Missouri.
Currently, I’m a summer intern at the Kansas City Business Journal. There I cover a variety of topics including travel, architecture, design and engineering. I also write feature stories for the weekly print paper.
Growing up, I watched my parents work hard to achieve their dream jobs. This has pushed me towards my own dreams. With my mom’s dream of owning her own business, I have been exposed to the ins and outs of businesses since the age of nine. This has also driven my passion to report on local businesses.
Please feel free to take a look at my portfolio and contact me with any further questions. Cheers!
