For many years at the Rocky Mountain News, M. E. Sprengelmeyer had what a lot of people consider a dream job, ace reporter for a major regional newspaper. M. E. covered war in Iraq and Afghanistan and politics in Washington and on the campaign trail. Then the Rocky closed and M E found HIS dream job. For 8 years he ran the small town weekly, The Guadalupe County Communicator in Santa Rosa, NM. He shares that experience with us, what he learned about reporting and small town life and why he’s decided to quit ‘em both.
