I enjoyed hearing Kelsey Gibbs speak at EIU last week. Gibbs came and told us all about life as a television reporter and even shared some things from her days as a radio personality. After showing us a couple of her own clips and pointing out flaws in them i gained a greater respect for her job based on all the mistakes she found and I didn’t even notice. She consistently reminded us that background noise and careful editing are keys to reporting that must never be overlooked. She provided us with a lot of advice and even some words of encouragement in the end and I for one appreciated her talk a lot even though her career path isn’t necessarily the same one I would choose for myself.
