CBC News, Assignment Desk
Working under the direction of reporters and producers I chased newsworthy guests who were connected directly to the day's news. For example when Canadian employment statistics were about to be released I had the CEO of a multimillion dollar manufacturing company and a recent university grad struggling to find work ready to be interviewed for their different perspectives on the Canadian economy.
I interviewed the guests I booked, for TV and Radio, and got the material back to CBC and always to a tight deadline.
When I wasn't chasing and gathering interviews for News Network I would be supporting other programs by doing research and gathering material from other sources to add value to their broadcasts.
