Launching a Startup in Iraq  | American Journalism Review.

Lando landed his first job in journalism in October 2000 as a reporter for a talk radio news station in Kalamazoo, WKMI 1360. He worked there for five years while attending Western Michigan University and also cohosted a talk radio show at the college radio station, WIDR. He spent a year each as news director and general manager, then went to the local NPR affiliate, WMUK. After he graduated with a political science degree, Lando switched to print and began freelancing for the Kalamazoo Gazette and Battle Creek Enquirer. Through a previous contact at one of the radio stations, he also started editing for UPI, making the first connection that would eventually lead him to Iraq.
