careers in Broadcasting

There're plenty of opportunities in front and  behind the mic.

ASSIGNMENT EDITOR

WHAT THEY DO: An assignment editor is responsible for gathering bits of news and assigning reports to reporters in the newsroom. While creating a newscast is usually a team effort, assignment editors set news coverage priorities, organize the logistics of camera crews and reporters, and arrange for the various satellite feeds and live on-scene coverage.

REQUIREMENTS: This position is fairly skilled in terms of experience in a newsroom. Some stations may require specific educational background (i.e., a degree in journalism).

CONTINUITY WRITER

WHAT THEY DO: A continuity writer works as an editor in the newsroom to help maintain the continuity of stories.

REQUIREMENT: As a writer, you must have excellent writing skills, detail-orientated and be proficient in basic word processing programs.

NEWS DIRECTOR

WHAT THEY DO: The news director supervises the news department. An effective ND must understand budgeting, personnel management and the technical aspects of broadcasting. In addition to having a firm understanding of the community service role of broadcast journalism, he or she must also have solid news judgment - the ability to determine which stories are most informative and of the greatest value to the local broadcast consumer.

REQUIREMENTS: This is not an entry-level position and requires a good deal of experience, knowledge and education.
