Alexis Jarrett-WLTZ NBC 38-Dee Armstrong Show

What I have learned from watching Dee Armstrong and also observing the industry is that working in T.V. is a tough job and probably one of the most demanding industries you will ever work in. Appearance, personal opinion, and competition are all “perks of the job.” You have to have very tough skin to work in this business and I have seen first hand how it can take a toll on people’s’ personal lives.

One thing that is rewarding about T.V. is that you have the power of influence. Influence is probably one of the most powerful agents T.V. has to offer. I am looking forward to having the power of influence, and understanding its power means being responsible for what I say and do. One that you need in all industries is balance and a great team.

WLTZ has a team of people who care about you personally and professionally. I have appreciated my one year interning here.

Lights ! Camera ! Action !

A camera person has been one of my job descriptions since last December for the Dee Show. Working behind the camera during the live Dee Armstrong show can be a very scary experience, but it is also very rewarding!  There are times when I glance over at the shots I am taking and realize that I have moved the camera during live T.V. ! It also is very fun when we get to have cooking segments and get to see all the yummy food up close and personal.

I have to remember to white balance, check the focus, and frame the shots correctly. I was taught all of this within the first week of working inside the station. Take a look at some of the pictures of me at the Dee Show.

Cool right!

One of the most important things to do is to make sure that the camera person keeps track of the time, and make sure that the talent (Dee) gets to her position in time.
