Hello, my name is Fritz Klug. I am a former journalist who now creates digital content for a brewery in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Welcome to my portfolio. Please look around.
I fell in love with journalism while studying Latin and Greek in college. After school, I was hired as a multimedia journalist at MLive, the largest media organization in Michigan. I covered a wide range of stories, from crime to politics. I was a photographer, produced videos, organized live streaming events, planned community events and managed social media accounts. I have been involved in several breaking news scenarios and have covered statewide elections in Michigan, leading innovation in coverage on several issues.
Working in the craft beer industry, I use photos, videos and GIFs as some of the ways I tell the story about our beer and the dedicated people who craft it.
I have spoken at conferences and to classes about digital journalism and how I used my smartphone to report stories.
Technology has been a passion since the first time I used a computer. I am continuously learning about different systems and find new ways to convey information and tell stories. But beyond whatever the latest features or networks are, what is most important is the connection with our fans. My job is to deliver important information to people in what ever way we can reach them.
