Now available to anyone…….
Mike Sechrist, GM forWKRN is leaving his job.
He was and remains one of the greatest champions of the VJ model.
And at WKRN he made it work, and showed massive profits from his website.
He understands how it works in the real world.
We did a lot of training sessions atWKRN, and Sechrist understood the value of VJs and what they could contribute to a newsroom. Even if you don’t buy into the full blown VJ model, you can’t deny the importance of learning the skill set. Even the addition of a few well trained VJs can vastly improve the performance of your newsroom, and provide original video to your website.
Or if you’re a newspaper, you might want to think about training some of your reporters and photographers to work in video. On their own.
For any professional in the broadcasting world, the ability to shoot, cut, produce and upload your own stories, on your own, is paramount. The way the world is going, its probably the most powerful skill set you can have.
It makes you a triple threat – and highly employable.
Mike saw the value of this at WKRN. So that’s why he and we are joining forces to offer Professional VJ Training. Based in Nashville, it is a week that will change your professional life – or your newsroom forever.
This is a training course geared strictly for the professional.
If you’re a producer or reporter we’ll teach you to shoot, cut and upload.
If you’re a former photographer we’ll teach you to write and the basics of journalism (you’ve been watching it long enough!).
If you’re a writer or radio journalist we’ll prepare you for the world of online and on air video.
If you want to function as a journalist in the digital world, it is a week that will change your career.. and your life.
I am delighted to be working with this man. He is a visionary and a real pleasure to spend time with.
