  • A Waterloo Region visitor « Breaking News
    I ll be blogged A Waterloo Region visitor By Bill on March 26th 2007 And they ve got me working School shouldn t be work But seriously this is fun And the only way to learn and brush up on skills I m Karlo Berkovich associate editor online at The Record and I m here to pick up tips I ve learned a lot since I took my job moving over from being sports editor on Sept 5 06 I d been blogging before that and posting some breaking news so moving to the web fulltime as essentially a coordinator between the newsroom and the web centre techies seemed a natural fit I now do tons of breaking news posts have some familiarity with things like iphoto and imovie I had never heard about before and people in the office say I ll soon be wearing a pocket protector But really posting breaking news is no different or not much different at least than updating for a wire service an experience I had while freelancing major league sports for the UPI remember them Toronto office in the mid to late 1980s What appeals to me about this intensive work training week is as mentioned brushing up on skills I already have and learning new ones like shooting and editing video and trying slide shows I oversee the production of our own slide shows now but don t do the hands on and haven t been able to carve out the time yet What s also worthwhile is what is always worthwhile at any training session interacting with other professional journalists After just one day I feel like part of a team with people I knew only by name or reputation just hours ago and having fun while we work Bill
