Another day at WVUA…it’s sweeps time, so the newsroom is busy! Everyone is scrounging around making phone calls for the 10 PM news. One of the major stories in development is the shortage of Methotrexate, a drug used in the treatment of childhood cancer. Another is how the entire campus of UA is lighting up pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. It’s pretty neat to listen to how the stories develop even over the period of a few hours in order to provide the most credible and most interesting story possible for the viewers.
A wise woman in broadcasting once said, “”I think the one lesson I have learned is that there is no substitute for paying attention.” (Diane Sawyer)
I think I would be safe to say this newsroom assistant position has taught me just that. cb
