CTNJ's Christine Stuart Makes Time Magazine

Connecticut's own Christine Stuart of Connecticut News Junkie finds herself this week in the pages of Time Magazine.
On any given day at, there are stories about Connecticut's budget woes, health care issues and Senator Chris Dodd's attempts to reform the credit card industry. Most of the stories are written by Stuart. All the photos are taken by Stuart. And Stuart or her husband, who works as a layout editor at a local paper, handle most of the ads, which are for local unions or the Connecticut Dairy Farmers Association. So far, her best month garnered her site 67,000 page views. But Stuart, 31, who has to have a part-time job to make ends meet, says she is treated, more or less, as an equal by the other reporters in the office. "One of them told me, 'You have to make it, because you're the future.'"
Congratulations to Ms. Stuart for getting some high-profile recognition for her good work covering the goings-on at the State Capitol.
