Best Of 2009

Jarvis Holliday and Mary C. Curtis

Staff Pick

The death of print publications and the rise of Internet-only news outlets has left a lot of journalists out in the lurch — with tons of talent and experience, but no idea how to adapt to an ever-changing media landscape. Charlotte-based writers Jarvis Holliday and Mary C. Curtis, however, have embraced this brand-new world with open arms. Holliday left a steady editing gig at Charlotte Magazine and now, along with writing and editing for a variety of companies, creates daily content for his own popular blog, Grown People Talking. Curtis, on the other hand, served an award-winning stint as a columnist at The Charlotte Observer, until she was caught in one of the paper’s recent wave of layoffs. These days, she splits time as a contributor for several shows on National Public Radio, delivers weekly commentary on Fox News Rising and writes columns every day for AOL’s highly trafficked new Web site These two ex-print pros are creating the blueprint for how journalists will chronicle the world’s events in the future. Take notes.
