WICS Newschannel 20
I am a news producer at WICS Newschannel 20 and Fox Illinois in Springfield, Illinois. I currently produce Newschannel 20’s 6p.m. and 10p.m. newscasts.
I have been with the station for four years. During this time I have produced Fox Illinois’ 2 hour morning show, Fox Illinois’ 9p.m. newscast, as well as Newschannel 20’s 5p.m. newscasts.
In this role I am responsible for writing, coordinating with reporters for their stories, deciding which camera shots and anchor positions will be used, and what types of visuals will be used for each story to create a cohesive and fast paced product for viewers.
I also help run the newscast in production control during the newscast. During the newscast, I am responsible for keeping time for the show and making sure it ends on time, communicate with reporters doing live shots from the field, and overall making sure the show runs smoothly.
