How Liz Claman Got Her Start In TV

Getting a job in the TV news business is tough. For Fox Business anchor Liz Claman, the path she took was decidedly typical… although it took a lot of determination to get there. Claman talks to the Charlotte Observer about how it happened:

I had been sending my resume tape and a paper resume with a letter. That stopped after the 15th rejection. Instead, I picked one city (Columbus, Ohio because it was first alphabetically on my list), studied it until I knew it inside and out. Imagine trying to “Olentangy River” without checking the pronunciation first! I researched all the issues facing the city and then targeted the #3 station, figuring the management there would take a chance on me. I bought my own plane ticket instead of asking them to fly me out, and it worked like a charm. I landed the job and never looked back.
