“Breaking Into TV News” – Breaks Into TV

This past week I was a guest on KCRAChannel 3 Reports at 7 A.M. with host Adrienne Bankert to discuss my new book Breaking Into TV News: How To Get A Job & Excel As A TV Reporter-Photographer.

You think about appearing for interviews like this for days in advance, then once you’re in the moment — and you’re on live TV — all you can think about is not going blank and keep talking, fall back on the handful of talking points you want to get across. Then when it’s over it’s like finishing a full out lap around the track. You don’t know what you said — but you know you didn’t get to 90% of what you did want to say.

Very grateful to KCRA anchor Adrienne Bankert and KCRA executive producer Gretchen Littlejohn for having me on the show.
