News Producing Summary

In October 2013, literally days before November Sweeps began, I started my first full-time broadcast journalism job at KNWA/KFTA, a NBC/Fox duopoly in Fayetteville, Arkansas (DMA #100). I’ve been the weekday night-side producer of the Fox News Edge at 5:30 and 9 p.m. for more than a year.

In April 2015, I moved to KTUL, the ABC affiliate in Tulsa, Oklahoma (DMA #60).

From April until mid-October, I was weekend producer and weekday associate producer and fill-in producer. In that time, not only did I write for and produce on dayside and nightside newscasts as needed, but I produced and boothed special coverage such as President Obama’s visit to Oklahoma in the summer.

After filling in on the morning show, Good Morning Oklahoma, for a few weeks, I eventually was moved to GMO to serve as interim senior morning producer, starting in mid-October. In that position, I am in charge of content and reporter story assignments and overseeing producers. I pull content to run in the shows, both from the evening before if it remains relevant to our viewers and fresh content looking ahead to top local stories to be covered in later newscasts and national/world news making headlines overnight. I also oversee content showcasing and breaking news.
