Welcome to the PIT List!

I'm a network field producer who also worked in local tv as a line producer and field producer. Over the years, I have had the great fortune to work with super people. Now I'd like to pass along what I know and rant a tad.

I check it sporadically, but I love answering emails, so if you have an issue or difficult person you need help with, don't hesitate to shoot it my way.

Get a life

A job in t.v. news has a way of taking over your life. Make sure you spend at least a little time working on getting a life outside of work. Easier said than done but to (badly) paraphrase Linda Ellerbee, "Work is not your friend." It's a job. A really, really cool job, to be sure, but a job. Make sure you make time for what really matters. Regular exercise helps and so does time with non-t.v. friends as well as family.

And how about cutting down on all the caffeine? Well, let's not go crazy.
