About Small Market
Small Market provides an eye opening look into the reality that is the world of television news for budding journalists breaking into the business. All too often people who aspire to become news anchors or reporters think their first job out of college will be as glamorous as those of the nation’s top anchors and reporters, like Katie Couric and Charles Gibson. After working a while in a small market, or small city, young journalists usually find that isn’t always the case. They aren’t making lots of money, working with the best equipment, or interviewing people with global influence. Small Market spotlights the experiences of journalists who have gone before them to enlighten these young journalists about the potential issues and challenges they could face in their small markets. The book also motivates them not to give up on their careers, as so many have, and to keep their heads up in the face of adversity.
