Life of Me: The Next Step

by - May 29, 2012

I have some exciting news, no pun intended.

Starting Monday I will officially be the senior producer of my station.

The duties are that of an executive producer. We will just no longer have a position with that title.

As the senior producer, I'll get to fulfill my career goals - or at least, I'll work on fulfilling them to the best of my ability.

I've said it before: for most journalists, my station is just one stop in a long line of jobs. Reporters, producers, anchors. They all breeze through for a year or two and then they move onto the next stop. Not me, though.

I'm not going anywhere. I love where I'm at. It's the perfect size and has everything and everyone I need to be happy. I'm not a moth drawn to the lights of the big city. I like to go visit every now and then, but nothing could ever take the place of a long drive through the country on a hot summer day.

So I think I'll stick around at the station as long as they'll let me. There's nothing wrong with staying where your roots are, after all.
