Is it possible to be a television journalist without studying Broadcasting?
I'm currently living in Michigan and my university has a Broadcasting program. The only problem is that it is too concentrated on the technical side (such as audio, video, editing, and copywriting) rather than working on scripts and on-air talent. I'm majoring in Journalism (since I love to write, travel, and communicate with others) and Theatre (to help with the communication and public speaking part). I'm also minoring in Anthropology. It would be a dream job for me if I could work as a television journalist. I'm just disappointed at the program here. With what I am studying, would this be sufficient enough to get a job in media or electronic journalism in today's workforce?
