Stations are taking advantage of the growing number of experienced newspaper reporters and columnists looking for work. Their writing skills, wide networks of sources and often long experience on beats are just what stations need to make their on-air and online coverage stand out and excel in a growing multiplatform marketplace.
This is a good read. TV stations definitely need good writers—and the majority of broadcast journalists that I’ve worked with, while great reporters, are not excellent writers. (As I told someone, I don’t expecting Pulitzer-worthy stuff. I expect a period at the end of a sentence and a capital letter at the beginning. Subjects and verbs are good, too.)

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT TV REPORTERS (by MicCameraAction)
You know how it is, right, ladies? You know a guy for a while. You hang out with him. You do fun things with him—play video games, watch movies, go hiking, go to concerts. You invite him to your parties. You listen to his problems. You do all this because you think he wants to be your friend.
See, I have the opposite problem. None of the guys I know ever want to date me—they just want me to be their friend and use me as an emotional punching bag because I am a damned good listener.
Note to guys: If you are my friend and start bitching and moaning to me about how “ALL THE GOOD GIRLS ARE TAKEN” and I’m single (yes, this has happened too many times to count)… let’s just say that no jury would convict me. Got it?
In my trophy cabinet there are yet to be literary awards of excellence. What is there is an epic quest born simply of unquenchable wonder and amazement.
You have an epic quest in your trophy cabinet? I can top that. In my wardrobe, I have an unforgettable journey into a land called Narnia.
I completely agree.
