Exhilarating and fast-paced environment
News Anchor/Writer WCBS 880 AM New York (Current Employee) – 345 Hudson – April 19, 2018
I started working at CBS in 1997 as a news writer and they took a chance on me because I had only done on-air work. After I proved myself I because to anchor the news and that was when the real learning came in. CBS encourages well-read, well-informed journalists and not just "writers or anchors." They want everyone there to a burning passion for the messy and chaotic news business. The management is strict, but not overwhelming, the workplace culture is competitive, but balanced. The hardest part of the job is deciding what you will lead with. Local news? National news? Sometimes even a celebrity story can make you wonder is that's the lead story. But it always turns out exactly as it should. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is getting a story FIRST and getting it out there for the listeners to know immediately. Recently when The President green-lighted a missile attack on Syria, I got to tell our millions of listeners that military action was underway in a joint attack with Britain and France. Those are the stories I live for.
