Web, Graphics, and Communication


Even during my second to last time as Web/Graphics producer, I noticed how I still need to improve my communication skills. I definitely need to improve my communication with the lead producer. Usually I feel bad interjecting with questions all the time, because I know as lead, there is so much to multitask that every minute matters. But, I kept noticing slugs being added, removed, moved, and revised throughout the afternoon which made it hard for me to determine what each story was, and I wanted to make sure each graphic, cutline, and fullscreen was accurate. I definitely plan on improving my communication with Mariah to make sure we’re on the same page of what she envisions each story, even though I know she is already overwhelmed with so many tasks.  

Even though I hope to still improve communication, I think I have made improvements with my handle on this multitasking producer position. My past few times as Web/Graphics Producer, I would focus just on web in the morning and just on graphics in the afternoon—past 1:00, I would forget I even was the web producer. But yesterday I made an effort to still pay attention to the ATVN website and twitter feed as I was ordering and revising graphics. For example, around 5:30, when Romney was declared the GOP primary winner in Maryland, I made sure to tweet the breaking news.
