Brooke Reilly
As a senior looking to break into the industry as an on-air reporter (or MMJ) / anchor, I know that I will be starting in local news. If offered a job that sounds like it could be a potentially good opportunity, do you recommend taking it or trying to apply to more and see if a better opportunity comes up?

Do you think that the current situation is going to hurt those of us looking to get jobs in the news industry? I know TV stations mostly profit off ad sales and may have hiring freezes

protip: Reserve your domain name as soon as you think of it. Someone grabbed wasimahmad.com and no amount of money has ever convinced him to give it up. (GoDaddy + Bluehost can do that for <$15 a year)
