Live broadcast news is changing rapidly and the newscasters of tomorrow will be telling the news remotely using vastly different technologies. Major networks will be looking for cameramen, reporters and technicians skilled in the latest satellite and IP technologies to bring the news to the public. Seeing the need to train these broadcasters of tomorrow, On Call Communications has stepped up to the plate and will attend the National College Media Convention in Louisville,Kentucky to look for talented college broadcasters to train for use in its live news gathering system.
“We’ve seen a tremendous interest from the major networks in finding talented and IP savvy news teams. There are real opportunities out there for teams like this to work directly with the networks to cover stories in their local markets. It’s a win-win situation for the students, their schools and the networks.” said Jim Gilbert, CEO of On Call.
Free training and special discounts on satellite news gathering equipment are available to interested college online and television media outlets as part of the initiative to train tomorrow’s broadcasters.
Meet On Call at the National College Media Convention in Louisville, Kentucky Wednesday – Friday October 27 – 29 in booth 2b to learn more about the college training program.
