In an era when journalists change employers often and out of necessity, Barb Zuehlke has broken the mold. On the cusp of retirement later in 2019, Zuehlke, now senior editor at Aircraft Maintenance Technology, is celebrating a 40-year career for the same publishing company.

In this edition of Update-1, she spoke with National Press Club Broadcast/Podcast Committee co-vice chair Adam Konowe on the floor of an aviation maintenance convention to discuss her career, and the evolution in journalism and public relations during the past four decades.

Broadcast/Podcast team co-vice chair Mike Hempen produces Update-1. The podcast can be heard on the Club website or on iTunes, Stitcher and TuneIn.
