Good morning!

I've had 'tv news' listed as an interest of mine for some time now, but I've never taken the opportunity to see if in fact there are any LJ Communities behind it.

My name is William, and currently I am not in the field of broadcasting, but am planning on pursuing a career in tv news through Specs Howard.

Currently my favorite news station is our ABC Action News affiliate, which is in a top five market. They are professional, approach humor politely, and have the darn nicest set. I was foutunate to tour their news room a while back and see the operations for myself, and I should say, I was surprised at how few people ran the operation, at least during a noon broadcast. The anchors have a wonderful television presence with the exception of the new fake-bake, large-head (literaly), Stephern Clark. That guy comments on every news story and has had some character slip ups that I will one day gladly mention. I suppose most of my resentment for him is because he ousted my role model Guy Gordon, who worked the 5, 6, 11 and sometimes noon and morning news casts. Guy now works at the local NBC station doing the moring news.

My least favorite station is our FOX affiliate, they talk like they don't know what they are doing, their set is unattractive (I know that's a little shallow), and sometimes they have camera problems. They have gotten better at their casts in later years. I commend them for that.

I am excited about being a part of this Community.
Thank you.
