"I see so much dereliction of journalistic duty among reporters. You see these people in DC who have disdain for the hunting and fishing way of life, and it's really sad. I strive to help people get connected to see what this industry does."– Gabriella Hoffman
It takes courage to admit you’re new at something. And today’s guest is someone who doesn’t back down from being new at something she actually speaks about as an authority.
Seriously. Gabriella Hoffman has worked her way up to being an active writer in the hunting, fishing, outdoor and firearm spaces, but she’s relatively new to hunting. She’s also a very active political reporter, and I would certainly put the influencer label on her, even though it may not surface how some of you interpret it.
In many ways, influencers to me are the new newspaper columnists. People are excited to see new content from them. They have a clear but evolving point of view. And they reach the masses. The idea of an influencer often gets tied to social media, but it can run so much deeper than that.
Gabriella, or Gabby as her friends call her, is a great example of that. She is an influencer on many levels, ranging from her articles to her own podcasts, from her social channels to her own network. She’s an interesting person, and she and I got to sit down and chat about her background and hear what she thinks of today’s media landscape.
This is another great show from POMA. I’ve got one more of these in the chamber. Unlike the last couple, that person’s last name is not Hoffman.
