A little background on who I am and what I do. I currently reside near the Capital Region. Not familiar with it? Don’t sweat it. New York’s Capital District, also known as the Capital Region, is a region in upstate New York that generally refers to the four counties surrounding Albany, the capital of the state.
Anyways. I work for a TV station that focuses on two markets in the state of New York: Capital Region and the Hudson Valley. I’m an assignment editor. What’s that? Basically I am responsible for identifying the top news stories for the day, and assigning/managing crews in the field. Each day I have to execute a daily plan that ensures all desired editorial content is gathered in a timely fashion, which at times can be difficult.
What do I do besides being glued to my phone during breaking news? I love to go to music festivals, concerts, play with my pup and two rabbits, hike, kayak, explore, and watch the world pass me by.
