Alumna Frances Wang Visits Media Center, Shares Advice

Frances Wang '14 stopped by the Media Center on vacation from her reporter job at KREM-TV in Spokane, Washington, and we caught up with her.

Frances Wang '14 talks about everything from a day in her life to what it's like to work with fellow ATVN alumni. She also tells us what she wishes she would've known as a student. 


Hi, thank you for your comment. At Annenberg TV News there are various positions. Two of them are anchor and reporter. Anchors are in the studio and "host" the newscast in a way. They read the stories multimedia journalists and they themselves wrote throughout the day. Reporters are usually out in the field—not in the studio behind the anchor desk—reporting on one story. They tend to produce reporter packages, which are longer pieces (around 1:30) that are more in-depth. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi, I am a senior in high school and interested in USC Annenberg. I am confused when Ms. Frances says to "report" more. What is the difference between reporting and being an anchor and reporting news? Thank in advance.
