As the Online Editor of The Source, Kazeem Famuyide (Class of 2010) was indeed online – all the time. He has clocked up over 100,000 Tweets and notched up over 6,000 followers.. and counting.
His Twitter scene was abuzz recently with news that he’s leaving The Source to become Senior Editor of Hip Hop Wired.com. And this week he made it official, though he tells me he will continue writing for The Source, something he was doing even as a student in the Purchase journalism program.
When he was interviewed by Susan Varghese (Class of 2010) for Purchase HerCampus two years ago, he was already sounding like a journalist who was going to go far.
“Believe in your craft. Journalism isn’t going anywhere; it’s just going to shift. The good stuff is going to rise to the top anyway.”
ALL the way to the top, Kazeem!
