A few blogs ago, I talked about juggling chainsaws inside the newsroom. A writing consultant said that is what a producer takes care of when she’s getting ready for hew news show. She’s juggling live reports on stories that are being updated in the field and over the news wires. She’s also coordinating new video from reporters, new scripts for her anchors and new information from the assignment desk. Those are her chainsaws. It looks damn cool on TV when she can hit those elements during a live broadcast. Each one also has the potential of causing some major damage to the show if the producer screws them up.
Now, I’m exploring a new career opportunity with A Really Goode Job. I’m looking forward to writing/blogging/shooting stories about the wine country experience in Sonoma County.
Check out this video reference from Ann Osterberg in Sacramento. We both work at the NBC station. In addition to working in the news business, we also enjoy wine, food and entertaining conversations.
