In this backstage interview from Leadercast Women 2019, Kate Delaney, Emmy award-winning journalist and host of “The Kate Delaney Show,” shares her advice for pursuing content curation.

“[You have] to be willing to put in the research and figure out what [the story or content is],” she says. “Is it industry-wide? Are there other publications you can go to? Are there people you can reach out to? What about you doing some interviews?”

Watch the video to learn more about creating your own content.

I say I'm a content curator. I think from the time I was born, I was a content curator. My mother would get magazines and I would absorb them when I was, you know, 7 years old. What you have to do, I think, is to be willing to put in the research and figure out what it is. Is it industry-wide? Are there other publications you can go to? Are there people you can reach out to? What about you doing some interviews? How about if you reach out to someone and say, “You know, I'm interested in that position.”

Trust me, people will give you time. “Do you have 10 minutes? Could I interview you about that?” And you'll learn and you'll put out original content. You don't have to be a journalist. The great thing about technology is you can be your own journalist by putting it out there, maybe even on your own podcast. But if it's just for you even, that's incredible content that you can take in.

I learned that technology is your friend and everyday it's so exciting to me because I'm learning new things. I mean, whatever it is, whatever the platform is, what it is that I need to do to get there bigger, badder, faster, I'm all about it. Be flexible and just learn as you move along. And the way we are today in society is you can't reject some of the amazing things that you can apply with technology.
