Craft and Research, I now pronounce you…

August 28th, 2008 by Jack

After two years of the single life, the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism’s Craft I and Research Methods courses tied the knot in the summer of 2008…destined to live happily ever after?

Whatever the case, they’re together this fall, and this is the official blog of Jack Styczynski, the Research Adjunct for the Craft I classes of Tim Harper and Steve Strasser.

It’s the spot for the students in those sections to come for research handouts, assignments, news, tips and whatever else comes up during the semester.

So check in often.  And welcome to the J-school!

I am researcher, hear me roar!

My name is Jack Styczynski and I’m what you get when you cross a journalist with a librarian.

After five years as a radio news and sports director, I decided to forgo the glamour of city council and school committee meetings, high school football games and cheese sandwich dinners to become a mild-mannered librarian.

Not mild mannered enough to give up the news business, of course.  I’ll spare you the travelogue here, but if you’re the type who craves the old-fashioned résumé, click away.

And what captures my attention away from the job?

Enough about me.  Feel free to talk about yourself.
