Every now and then I get asked when am I going to move on to a bigger market. It's a tough question to answer because I find the challenge of the next step intriguing, not only with stories I would be able to cover, but the potential future career possibilities that a move would unlock. But there are a million reasons why I haven't, mainly I'm from here and love it here and so does my family. That said, I could go tomorrow if the perfect job came along. But of the many reasons holding me back, this is one of them.
To set it up, one of the many blogs I read is of a former CNN producer who was fired. He's a bit jaded toward CNN so it's nice to get a cold honest look from the inside of the corporate news giant's belly every now and then. Apparently, CNN is now canning a favorite of mine-- Miles O'Brien-- and this is the blog post about it and how the life of a network newsman isn't always lush. Oh, and watch out for a naughty word in there. Like I said-- jaded.
