  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • If working in development my responsibilities include writing script reports, setting up rooms for meetings, attending meetings, writing spreadsheets and logging information tasks given by my line manager. At CNBC NEWS depending on the department I was mostly just watching the show and helping mix sound and cue Broll, when working with the features department I would transcribe interviews, write distribution and subtitle scripts.
