    I worked at WKTV News Channel 2 full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The former News Director, now General Manager, Steve McMurray is, by far, one of the best managers I've ever had the pleasure of working for. He's understanding, supportive and helpful. He wants to see you develop and succeed. He's one of the most wonderful people in the industry and anyone would be fortunate to work for him.

    Cons

    This is small market television, so salary scales are pretty low.

    Sometimes I was assigned to photographer and not reporter and I didn't learn very much from those experiences

    Pros

    I like my coworkers, the actual work, and the fact that there is always something new to work on everyday.

    Cons

    The hours can be long. Sometimes, I don't get home until 10pm at night. Other than that, I really enjoy the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My direct boss is awesome. I like the freedom they give me to do work as i please. I also enjoy the direction.
