Rob Passons: Reporter for the Mille Lacs Messenger

Rob Passons has only been in journalism since about 2006. A Minnesota native, he left more than two decades ago, working all sorts of construction and manual labor jobs.

He'd been looking for a way to get back when a job opened up at the Mille Lacs Messenger. He currently works as a features writer and outdoor reporter for the Messenger, where he said Editor Brett Larson allows him to experiment with more creative "gonzo journalism."

This interview was conducted on Jan. 27, 2011.
