News10, only hiring Multimedia Journalist!

Since 2008, News10 has decided to take an approach to have every reporter shoot, edit, write their own stories instead of having 'crews' go out. Stacy Owen, former news director at News10 decided to take this path before she left the station earlier this year. KRON 4 in San Francisco also does the same thing and it's where Stacy Owen came from before joining News10.

So how does this all work? The reporters get assigned a story at the beginning of their shift, they grab a camera that is smaller from a regular field camera, and go off to shoot their interviews and "b-roll". Once they finish, they return back to write and edit their story and once it's time for a live shot, they go out with an actual photographer into the field. Usually, the photographers go out to the breaking news stories and if the story is huge, they will dispatch a reporter right away. Normally, if it's big like a protest or capitol budget story, both photog's and the reporter will be there. Slowly, more and more stations are doing this. FOX40 is looking to hire a few Multimedia Journalist, and when most reporters start off out from college they are required to do the whole shanagans.
