MLive-Flint Journal sports reporter Eric Woodyard stands by the J-Note statue outside of Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. (
Nervous. Excited. Confident.
As I entered the front doors of the Flint Journal building at 200 E. First St., emotions moved through my body every which way.
“Am I good enough?” my mind wondered as I entered the building a reporter for the first time Jan. 17, 2011.
I was fresh out of college, a 22-year-old who graduated from Western Michigan University not even a month before getting hired to write for my hometown newspaper.
Here we are, six years later, and as good as the ride has been, it’s time for me to accept another challenge in my life.
I’m pleased to announce I have accepted an offer as a Digital Sports Writer to cover the Utah Jazz for the Deseret News in Salt Lake City, Utah. dummy post
