There’s something very special about interviewing Johnny Vardeman, a top-tier journalist in northeast Georgia since 1953–because it’s not often that I get to talk for an hour with such a prominent writer/editor. As the guest on my program “The Communication Corner”–aired weekly at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesdays, and re-broadcasted at 6:00 a.m. on Thursdays–Johnny addressed these and other topics:
–Why his columns about the history of northeast Georgia have become so popular
–His response to predictions that newspapers are becoming an obsolete communication form
–How newspapers have adapted successfully to the Internet age
–The role of editorial cartoonists
–Letters to the Editor
–Popularity of USA Today
–Who selects headlines for stories?
–“Inverted pyramid” writing style
–Ralph McGill and other courageous editors
–The most fascinating people he has interviewed
. . .and so much more vital information. You will benefit from this veteran journalist’s comments about his profession and his industry.
