A day in the life of a multimedia journalist Posted on August 20, 2019October 20, 2020 by Nathalie Vera in Miscellaneous I’m an MMJ in Santa Barbara County People are always like, “Do they do your hair and makeup?” “Where’s your camera guy?” “Do they write and edit your stories?” So here’s a #BTS look at my ~*glamorous*~ life as a #tvreporter First, I show up to the scene with my photographer the vampire who doesn’t appear in photographs. Jk it’s just me. After interviewing and shooting video, I go back to my office (the car’s backseat) After taking a quick lunch, I race against the clock in the middle of nowhere with not potty breaks. Then, my glam team comes and fixes my make up 💄💋 (still moi) Then I realize it’s dangerously close to the newscast and my video is still sending and then I die a little inside. Then, it’s *~show time*~ and in today’s case, I go live for 4 newscasts for both sister stations at 5pm & 6pm. The end! Just kidding, there’s still a 40-minute ride home, and a web article story to write.
