I worked in all phases of televison production at WKYT.
Production Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYDecember 29, 2015
My days at WKYT were spent doing studio production, and location production around Kentucky. I learned how to do all phases of production because the management was insightful enough to cross train some of us, therefore providing us with the skills to handle any aspect of a production. The management was excellent, and the co-workers were friendly and easy to work with. The hardest part of the job would have been the odd hours that the job title entailed, however these odd hours became the most enjoyable part of the job. I covered a variety of sporting events, interesting stories, and news.
Pros
Every day was different and exciting.
Cons
The pay was not very good, but I started this job just out of college.

Producer (Current Employee) –  Lexington, KYFebruary 8, 2014
All work in news is hard. The managers at WKYT care about their employees, however, the work is hard. You may not always have time to take a break or lunch. It's frustrating at times. A typical day at work (as a producer) entails sitting at your computer throughout the day and working until you leave, which may be ten hours after you arrived. The people there TRY to make it enjoyable. The managers know what they want, and it's hard to stay on board with their views, because it's not always communicated. The pay also isn't great, but if you're in news, it's probably not for the pay
Pros
People are great
Cons
No breaks, little communication
