What were your duties at ATVN? :

Sports Director/Anchor/Reporter

What is your advice to aspiring journalists?:

Writing, Shooting, and Editing. All three seem so basic, but they are fundamental components of being a good reporter and even producer. A good writer can get a job anywhere and the more experience you get shooting and editing,the more confidence you get enabling you to get more creative. I think it’s important to take risks and try different things in all these areas. As much as you’ll be tempted to leap at the first job offer, look at with as critical an eye as possible. Visit the station if you can,try to contact people who have worked there, learn as much as you can about it. At the same time, don’t limit yourself. Be willing to work anywhere for that first job or it will be a very difficult road.
