Episode 100: A Day in the Life of a Multimedia Journalist with Bria Stith of NBC

You know I like to bring on people who have careers in TV broadcasting so we can hear their advice on getting publicity through television, and my talk with NBC’s Bria Stith delivers that and more.

First of all, this digital age of journalism has generated a new role: Multimedia Journalist or MMJ, which is truly a “one-man band” kind of job — writing, interviewing, on-camera work, filming and editing to research, investigate, and produce 2 stories a day, every day, all year, every year.

So, Whether you’re pitching to the TV media or want a career in broadcast journalism, this is the episode for you.

Hang out with us while we chat about: Which stories to pitch to Bria (and how to do it) with a special pitch tip for speakers and authors, what a Multimedia Journalist is and does, the sacrifices made for any career in TV journalism, 3 + 1 journalism career-building tips, a day in the life of an MMJ and what Bria says is the hardest part, how you can make things easy for all your media contacts … and more!

"I would encourage anybody who wants to get into multimedia journalism to get into print, because you’re writing ALL the time.” – Bria Stith
