Work
Occupation
Journalist, storyteller, communicator
Skills
A dozen years in TV newsrooms taught me a variety of skills applicable to almost any other career: critical thinking, communication, time management, adaptability, problem solving, judgment and decision making, active listening, writing, copy editing, videography, editing and marketing strategy.
Employment
  • Cappelli Miles
    Account Manager / Broadcast Producer, 2013 - 2014
    As an account manager, I work with clients to ensure all their marketing and advertising needs are being met. Additionally, I produce radio and TV commercials for clients, while also serving as a spokeswoman for Bi-Mart.
  • KEZI 9 News
    Primary Anchor, 2007 - 2013
    My job at KEZI 9 News included a little bit of everything: some days I produced, some days I reported, but very rarely did I only anchor the newscasts.
  • KOIN Local 6
    Producer, 2006 - 2007
    Working in a Top 25 market, I quickly learned from some of the best in the business. The reporters, anchors and fellow producers here helped me develop a managerial style that encourages teamwork and precision.
  • Today's 6 News
    Reporter, 2004 - 2006
    I was the lead reporter on the station's highest-rated newscast, the 10 p.m. I covered agricultural, technology, political and breaking news, often doing four live shots a day.
  • KPIC TV
    Reporter/Director, 2001 - 2003
    My time at KPIC was an introduction to the broadcast journalism industry. In my role, I researched stories, conducted interviews, shot video, edited, designed graphics, planned and coordinated stories, established and maintained contacts, laid out and executed newscasts, and published stories on the Internet. These are all skills I continued to use throughout my career.
  • Oregon Daily Emerald
    Copy Chief, 2003 - 2004
    At ODE, I edited stories from on-staff and freelance writers for factual information and grammatical correctness.

Story
Tagline
Mother, music lover, former TV journalist, voracious reader and Amp addict
Introduction
I'm a TV journalist who born and raised in the Northwest, but longs for new adventures. I enjoy mountain hikes, fantasy football and trying new food and drinks. My favorite movies include "Roman Holiday" and "Vanilla Sky" because, above all else, I'm a terribly hopeless romantic. You can follow me @brandnewsmith for occasional news and an endless stream of adorable pictures of my two daughters.
