During our conversation, Christopher opens up about his personal journey and shares why he believes it's important to be easily accessible to sources in the fast-paced world of journalism. He also provides valuable insights into what he looks for in a pitch and how to effectively pitch the news desk at Fast Company. With a busy week in the newsroom, Christopher shares the exciting stories he's working on and reveals the challenges of saying no to pitches, even when they are exceptional.
