Yeah, that's right bitches. I'm guest-blogging here at KOE. I've seen your snide little remarks about me, my resume and my new job at The Weather Channel. Look, Keith's Ego has already laid it all out for you. My
A versatile reporter, producer, and writer with eight years experience in television news. A strong storyteller with excellent live skills with special emphasis on breaking news stories.Yes, that's right, I'm a very strong storyteller. Stories I've covered have ranged from an Easter Bunny on Ice to
And philosophy? It's like totally applicable to television reporting. I mean seriously. And this old woman (seriously, she's got to be like at least like 40 or something-that's ancient-kinda like Keith) who complains because no one would hire her for a TV job after she got out of Harvard? it's totally because she didn't major in Philosophy like Katy Tur's Ego did. See? I'm a genius!
Okay where was I? Oh yeah, experience. I have lots of experience. See, it says so right there on the resume. That Freelance Reporter Job at WPIX. I mean sure it was only a weekend job but it was still a job. And Keith's Ego had nothing to do with Katy's Ego getting that job either. See, it says so right here.
The Media Mob caught up with a CW11 spokesperson Jessica Bellucci this morning. According to Ms. Bellucci, Ms. Tur joined the station several weeks ago as a "freelance reporter," working on general assignment. "She got the job on her own merit," said Ms. Bellucci.
And like I spent a whole 10 months working at
Okay and then there was the Dec. '06 to May '07 gig that Katy's Ego had at VOOM HD News in NYC. (May-December, kinda like Keith's Ego and Katy's Ego, get it?). I mean sure no one has any idea what VOOM HD was ('cuz it's like only seen in a really teeny tiny area since the plug got pulled on it but that had nothing to do with my brilliant reporting). Now I know you're asking yourself why I haven't mentioned those videos I shot of elephants marching through NYC on Current and YouTube during that same time frame. Easy bitches: 'cuz those videos like totally don't exist anymore (because I deleted them faster than Keith's Ego can blow a ton of money on Ebay on old baseball junk). So too bad you missed out on their brilliance cuz they totally rocked.
And I know some of you are asking why it was that Keith's Ego referred to me as a "freelance reporter" in interviews back in the day when
Now that brings us to the entire year that Katy's Ego spent as an "editorial assistant" at KTLA in LA. Now in some reports Katy's Ego was referred to as a "producer" while at KTLA. Actually no one has any idea what I did there. Me? I couldn't figure out what I was doing there either. I mean clearly I was destined to greater things which is how I went from no on-camera experience in LA to working in the Number One Media market in the world. Happens everyday right? Right.
Where was I? Oh yeah, my beginning job--working for this thing called the Los Angeles News Service as a "field producer/video library manager/sales". The people who own that thing, Bob Tur and his ex-wife Marika Tur-Gerrard are great people (okay fine, big deal, so what-they're my parents, my getting the job with them had nothing to do with the fact that I was their daughter). And I know you're asking yourself how it is that I managed to hold down a full-time job from June 2001 to June 2005 in Los Angeles which just happened to coincide with the same time frame I was attending college in Santa Barbara. Please people, it's because I can multi-task! DUH!
So there you have it. My brilliant
