“How do you get into TV?” High schools and colleges across the country teach journalism, but anyone working in TV will tell you, “The only way to learn how TV news really works is to get into a newsroom.” This book tells how to get into that newsroom. Also, in-depth interviews with TV news professionals about how they got their jobs — and news directors tell what they look for when hiring TV news reporters. Breaking Into TV News is told from the first-person perspective of a journalist who’s worked in television news for three decades — and is still doing it. TV news reporters still carry a note pad and a microphone, but more and more they also have to shoot their own video, record their own audio, edit their own stories — and still make their deadlines. Breaking Into TV News takes you inside the world of local TV news: Shooting a TV news story; The art of the interview; Writing TV news stories; How to speed-edit video in minutes; The hard truth about that first TV news job; Longevity in TV news. And the biggest mystery of all — How To Get A Job In TV News. Illustrated With Over 250 Black & White Photographs.
