Spencer Bourdeau is possibly the new face and voice of media.

Spencer, 18, is a recent graduate from Mark Morris High School in Longview. He has already embarked on a media career by starting the Citizens Update, a local news and talk show that uses citizen reporters to gather the news and report it.

“We interview anybody between local politicians, people running for Congress, business leaders, even just regular citizens with whatever organization they’re with. If they want to come to us, we’ll interview them,” he told KATU’s Deb Knapp Wednesday during an in-studio interview.

He said economic development for Longview has been one of the hot topics recently.
