Don’t ever underestimate the power of the phrase “I can do it,” in a newsroom. You will run in to many people who will ALWAYS find a reason something can not be done.
No matter what the task, that person will tell you how the deadline is too tight or the equipment isn’t fast enough. They will tell you how the drive is too far or how much work they already have to do.
You can set yourself apart by making sure you are thought of as a person who can always find a way.
I know I will have TV veterans who will say this is a bad idea because it only means management will expect more and more. In this ever shrinking industry I would rather be a “go-to” person than someone who always wants to find a way out of an assignment.
