Adrienne Dellwo, TV journalist

I've been a professional journalist for 12 years, working mostly in television but also for a newspaper and as a freelancer.

The best advice I could give someone who was starting out is to understand technology.  If they understand basic HTML, web publishing, search-engine optimization and keyword usage, they're going to be a step ahead. Especially at small TV stations, everyone is expected to contribute content to the website, and many stations need someone who can work both on the web and in other capacities.  The more versatile you are, the more marketable you become.

Young journalists also need to recognize the difference between news writing and blogging, yet be able to write well in both styles.
