Format: Today, web links are the most popular and expedient manner for delivering resume "tapes". However if you'd like to submit a DVD, we will accept it.
File length: 15 minutes maximum should be your guideline.
In your email to us, include your name, address, telephone number, and email address.
Include a rundown of your video contents in your email.
Avoid music and countdowns at the beginning of your video.
If you do begin with a montage, it should include no more than 3 to 5 short examples of stand-ups
and a live shot. Some of these stories should follow.
A musical montage is not appropriate.
Some of your best work should be at the top of the video.
Be objective when choosing your material. Select stories that best represent your talents.
Remember, just because you broke a story or feel strongly about a particular segment
does not mean it is your best work!
Customize your video. For example, if you are submitting a video for a position as an
anchor/reporter, your anchoring examples should precede your reporting.
Anchors - show some personality! Remember that tosses and interaction on set are an
important aspect of an anchoring position.
Reporters - make sure you are in the stories you submit, especially at the head of your video.
We do understand that in some cases an excellent story may not contain a stand-up.
However, when submitting a tape, please ensure there is a stand-up in every story unless
you are extremely confident that the exception is justified.
Include a resume as a MS Word or Text document. Make sure your resume is professional, current, accurate and preferably one page in length.
Professional references should be included on a separate page.
Please inform us of your specific goals, professionally and geographically.
