All consuming news

  1. 1.  If you're interested in working in this field, you might pursue a career as a videographer who shoots the stories, a producer who organizes the flow of the show, a writer who writes the news, a reporter who covers breaking stories, a video editor or even an assignment editor who scouts out the stories worth covering.
  2. 2.  The anchors you see reading the nightly news are far from the only professionals on a TV news staff.  If you're interested in working in this field, you might pursue a career as a videographer who shoots the stories, a producer who organizes the flow of the show, a writer who writes the news, a reporter who covers breaking stories, a video editor or even an assignment editor who scouts out the stories worth covering.  For more information visit to our website: allconsumingnews.org
  3. 3.  As with most professions, you'll need to start gaining experience as early as possible.  If not, you can also gain experience by starting your own online blog or podcast or by volunteering at a community radio or TV station.  While having TV or video experience is best, having any sort of journalism experience is better than none.  After college, get more work experience -- and industry connections -- through internships or by freelancing for smaller news stations or newspapers.

  4. 4.  For writers or producers, you may need to compile a document that demonstrates your best written work and also produce a video reel.  You may need to take several internships and be open to part-time or freelance work to get your foot in the door. Also keep in mind that working at a TV station is just one avenue to pursue. Don't overlook jobs for Web-only publications, prominent blogs with video channels or jobs for private businesses that focus on video, film or even radio production.  For more information visit to our website: orkneynewstoday.org
  5. 5.  The median wage as of 2012 was $35,870. You'll likely need to work at a small-town TV station before you can land a job in cities such as New York, Los Angeles or Atlanta. Landing an internship -- typically unpaid -- at a station where you would like to work can increase your odds of getting a job there, although the competition for internships can also be pretty stiff. All journalists need to maintain a portfolio that shows the types of work they have done and what they're capable of doing. For more information visit to our website: micronewsagency.org
