I'm an experienced newsman who loved the business and everything about it. I worked crazy hours, 1:30 am to 2:00 pm in the office and attended banquets and meetings at night. I read morning and mid-day major newscasts, and stuffed the automation machine with 'local' newscasts for seven statons. I had a ball and tried to instill the fun in those I worked with.
My team earned over one hundred regional, national and international news awards. I have several handfuls of Best Newscast honours, but the only "I's" were my "eyes". We won as a team, and we would have lost as a team. We didn't lose....ever.
My specialty is local, and helping your staff learn where to find the stories that matter, stories that are relevant, stories that your audience will care about, stories that they will care about.
I'll show them tricks for developing and following stories, ways to reach into the community, and methods to help your sales team without compromising integrity.
Everyone is a winner with gerryphelannews . Your audience, your employees, your bottom line.
Local is king. I've lived it, I preach it, and I deliver it.
