The Story of Agriculture Podcast: Episode 4 with Katie Maupin, director of marketing and communications at the National Swine Registry.
Children often spend time making up stories and even writing them down, but it isn’t often that a child shows so much interest in writing that their parents start a monthly newsletter for them to have a creative outlet. That is exactly how Katie Maupin’s career in communications really got started, with the Maupin Monthly.
In this episode Katie, the director of marketing and communications at the National Swine Registry discusses her work overseeing the Seedstock Edge magazine and disseminating information about the swine industry and National Swine Registry events to purebred hog producers around the country using social media.
Topics discussed include:
- How to prepare for a career in journalism.
- How to publish news in real-time via social media
- Storytelling in print.
