One of the missing links in the tv newsbusiness has always been a way for entry-level reporters and producers to connect with new directors looking to hire them.
Now, DB & ASSOCIATES is rolling out www.CollegeTVPrep.com, a Website where news directors will have easy one step access to all the best available college talent to fill those entry-level reporter and producer positions.
DB& A principal David Brunner says the site fills a critical need in the industry.
“News directors are always calling me asking for good entry-level candidates.
The dual purpose of the site makes it unique.
News directors can use the website to view quality candidates for Entry-Level On and Off-Air openings, and the graduating college senior uses it to improve their skills and showcase their reel and resume. Everyone I talk to says it’s a great idea and certainly much needed in today’s broadcasting environment!”
The graduating senior program is set up over a nine month trimester to coach and better prepare the seniors for work in a post-college world.
When the coaching is completed, the graduate will have a professional talent page posted on the site for news directors and hiring managers to see and set up interviews for employment.
As energized mentors, Brunner and Talent Coach/Agent Phil Andrews are excited about the program because of the potential it offers to fill the need for professional able ready entry level talent in newsrooms.
