Mammas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Broadcasters

Hey, kids: ever thought you might like to work in the exciting world of TV or radio? Then take some time tomorrow to stop by Albany's Crowne Plaza for the New York State Broadcasters Association Career Fair.
In the interest of full disclosure, it may be a job where they want to cut your pay by 15% (WRGB), offer you no benefits (Albany Broadcasting), prevent you from taking fluids inside their shiny new building (Clear Channel), fire you for no good reason (WTEN), or make you anchor with Liz Bishop (also WRGB) ---but other than that, it really is very exciting and glamorous.
Not qualified? No problem, there are associate producer and account executive positions available. Those seeking on-air jobs should bring demo tapes; high school students applying for on-air work at Capital News 9 should also bring their working papers.
