There's lots to do to prepare for working as a TV reporter. It takes a good bit of equipment to report, shoot, edit and send stories back to the station. And because I'm working as a multi-media journalist (MMJ) I'm responsible for doing all those things. I have to make sure all that equipment works. So, over the weekend I've tested my gear to make sure it's all ready to go. You don't want to find out on deadline that something isn't functioning the way it should.
I'll be writing updates on my experiences here, with an eye toward what students can expect as they head out into the field after graduation - the challenges, the fun, the hard work, the excitement of local TV news. Come on back.
