Broadcast Journalists are often heard and watched, but rarely seen. By that, I mean, viewers do not really get to see a broadcaster’s every day life- how they prepare for the shows, how they sit in front of the computer for hours, the on-the field locations- just all the mundane things that broadcasters do daily.
Since it is my first entry, and since many might want to know who the contributors to the award winning shows of VOA are, I thought I would enlighten you with some pictures of VOA’s Burmese Service. We have an eclectic bunch. Everyone brings a unique touch to the office, and we all have a different role in the service ( literally and figuratively). If you look at it job wise- radio broadcasters rotate their roles, as editors, M.C.’s, and producers, but figuratively, our personalities are very unique. Some are much funnier than others. (I wouldn’t fit into that category. Although I try to think of myself as funny, my coworkers would tell you that I laugh more than I can tell jokes.)
VOA Burmese Service does radio broadcasts as well as TV broadcasts, and if you request more pictures of our bunch, I will try my best to update with pictures of the staff. We’re always looking for new story ideas and we enjoy reading comments from viewers. Most of all, we’re happy to have such a great audience.
