I suppose things are close enough to being official to post it here: I’ve taken a job with WKRN-TV in Nashville.
Channel 2 is the ABC affiliate and is the station that started the video journalist experiment earlier this year. I will be the station’s religion reporter as a video journalist.
If you had asked me 10 years ago if I would consider working as a one-man-band again I would have called you insane. But cameras then were much larger and editing in one of the 3 or 4 station edit bays would have been a pain.
The way WKRN does it, every vj gets his or her own Sony HD camera and a laptop with non-linear editing software. The camera and the editing program are both the same that I use now so my longest learning curve (I hope) will be learning my way around Nashville.
