At the TVNewser Show, Bret Baier, Aereo Panel and Drones

The TVNewser Show is underway at the New Yorker hotel. So far we’ve heard from Bret Baier, who compared covering Washington to “drinking from a fire hose — it’s nonstop.” We’ve heard about the legality of Aereo and the keys to reaching millennials from Fusion’s Alicia Menendez and HLN’s Albie Hecht. And a few minutes ago, we got a drone demonstration right here at the conference:

We’ll be a little light on posts today, but follow along with us on Twitter @TVSpyNews and using the hashtag #TVNewserShow.

TVNewser Show Price Break Ends Tonight

tvnshowsmallIs Aereo the future of TV, or will it be shut down before it really takes off? Are drones a safer way to capture news from the sky? How are broadcasters adapting to Web TV? Are newsrooms diverse enough? Is social TV a complement or a distraction?

We’re less than three weeks to the TVNewser Show where we’ll ponder those questions and many more.

So join NBC News anchor Tamron Hall, Fox News anchor Bret Baier, Fusion anchor Alicia Menendez, Tribune Broadcasting president Larry Wert, NBC SVP Julian March, CNN VP Geraldine Moriba and many more on April 29. And if you sign up before midnight tonight, you’ll get $150 off the price at the door.

What Will the Supreme Court Decide in the Aereo Case?

aereoOne month from today, Aereo and the broadcast networks will present their arguments in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. The Obama administration is siding with the broadcasters; Aereo’s CEO says the company is “confident in the merits of our position.” Despite an injunction in Utah, Aereo has continued to expand: the service is now available in Austin, Cincinnati and more than 20 other regions.

So what will the fate of the streaming television service be?

We’ll be talking about all this next month at the TVNewser Show, April 29 in New York City. Among the guests is Tom Taylor, the Assistant Managing Editor of Bloomberg BNA’s United States Law Week, who will break down the legal arguments for us as part of the Aereo panel discussion.

Learn How to Launch Your Career as a TV News Reporter

tv_reporter09TV News Reporting, a four-week intensive course starting January 14 in New York, teaches students what it takes to be on the news today.

Stephanie Tsoflias, a reporter/anchor at News 12 and founder of Reel Reporting, says “I didn’t want creating a demo reel to be a mystery to aspiring reporters anymore. Managers don’t want to see your college reels, or reels with only entertainment pieces. They want reporters who dig up stories for their reel that no one else has.”  Tsoflias has made it her mission to teach her students how to create a reel that will catch the attention of hiring managers at TV stations across the country, without going through a conventional university.

Her Mediabistro class alone has launched the career of at least four junior TV news reporters.  One of her students looked into expensive university courses, but decided to go another route. She describes her experience with Tsoflias as “proving to be one of the best investments I have ever made.  A month after the course was over, I had two interviews at TV stations, including one in a top 100 market. One month after that, I was offered a job with high exposure on a TV morning news show.”

With more outlets for continuing education than ever before, students have options of cost-effective, practical learning both online and in their cities. If you’re looking to become the next face of TV news in the greater New York area, please see more details on Tsoflias’ Mediabistro class here.
