I noticed this piece in the Washington Post last month. A TV station in DC is going to one-person news crews. Meaning a reporter will act as cameraman and reporter. They will shoot and edit their own stories. This station is the first in the DC area to do this, but it is a growing trend in television news. Which is why you’ll get sick of me hearing that the more skills you develop across all the journalistic mediums (print, TV, radio, etc.), the better.
