Why Create This Site?

Why talk newsroom politics? The stakes are higher than ever before. This cutthroat business is now reaching new heights. You can’t just lick your wounds and wind up at another station in a month. Social media and the crashed economy are making TV news jobs harder than ever to come by.  So I  want to help you batten down the hatches and survive.  Veteran journalists are dishing secrets, even though some of the lessons came at a high price.  The goal is to make life easier for you, because some of us had to learn everything the hard way.
It’s no secret there is little to no training in TV news.  You get a job and fight to keep it.  Most of what you learn is done on your own.  This site is meant to give you an edge with clear truly useful information.
