One indication of Corbin Crable’s future success could be there time he was a faculty adviser for Kansas State's official student-run news publication, the Campus Ledger. He didn’t just tell the students what to do; he used the opportunity to write and publish a style guide directed at the public relations sector. Corbin also assisted with hosting of conferences at both the state and regional levels. He’s never been content to do the minimum necessary to get by. It’s not who he is. Corbin Crable also demonstrates a penchant for passing on everything he learns to others whenever he can.

For example, while he was working toward his Master's, for example, Corbin Crable worked as a graduate teaching assistant at the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Kansas State. From there, he taught Magazine Production when the main professor was unavailable. That experience pushed Corbin Crable in the direction of teaching others. Later on, Corbin served as an adjunct professor in the Kansas State Journalism and Media Communications Department for three years. That was before he became the department's coordinator, which he did for six years.

Before he became a journalist and publication designer, Corbin Crable made sure he had plenty of education. He earned a Bachelor's degree in literature and anthropology from Kansas State University, and followed that up by earning a Master's Degree in Journalism and Mass Communications from the same school. He worked in several editorial positions with the college newspaper, the Kansas State Collegian. During his nine years there, he taught a number of courses, including Mass Media in Society , an introductory course on news writing and a course on global journalism.

Among the attributes liked most about Corbin Crable seem to be his ability to see every detail,. That likely which probably comes from his extensive editing experience, including his long term as a copy editor with the Grand Island Independent newspaper in Central Nebraska. There, he was pretty much responsible for the production of the entire newspaper. Not only did he edit articles for the local market and articles from the Associated Press for spelling, grammar, punctuation, style, grammar and syntax, but he also designed the front page of every paper, in addition to pages in the local, opinion and sports sections. He also posted the content for the Independent's website at the end of the day.

As a general assignment reporter and editor with the small Johnson County newspaper The Gardner News several years ago, he covered and wrote feature stories, but he also covered other news, especially regarding the local government, especially the school board. Even though this was primary a journalism job, he also helped design the pages for this twice-weekly publication and he uploaded every issue on their website at the end of every production cycle.

These days, Corbin Crable works as both a freelance web designer and a reporter for the KC Hispanic News in Kansas City, Missouri. In addition to reporting on stories of relevance to the Hispanic community in the Kansas City metropolitan area, he also uses the most advanced computer programs available to design the newspaper’s pages, to set up page spreads and create infographics to accompany his and other reporters' articles. His articles tend to run to fashion, popular culture and trends, vintage design and collectibles.
