Good for NPR, Bad for Domino’s Customers

A news and arts features reporter at the Des Moines Register since 2006, he’s jumped into the paper’s meet-and-greet grid. His first answer is a winner:

How did you get your start in journalism?

I decided to become a reporter during a brief stint as the worst Domino’s pizza employee Bemidji, Minn., has ever seen. During deliveries, I usually took roundabout detours to hear stories on NPR, which sounded a lot more fun than schlepping pizzas through the snow. My customers never ate anything hot.

Morain goes on to share a fun story about one of his favorite moments as a reporter. It happened at a New York art auction and involved some very intimidating high stakes. Check out some of his recent articles here.
