"To work as a broadcast engineer, you should have a background in electronics and a strong desire to troubleshoot problems." She encourages all high school students interested in a broadcasting career to start studying electronics, computing, systems managements, physics, videography, and editing while still in high school. "Mastering these subjects allows you to be a part of a team creating high-quality entertainment and information for consumers." The future of broadcasting, Anita believes, will see an increase in what she called the "backpack journalist" or "one-man band," who is producer, director, reporter, writer, videographer, and editor. Because the new equipment is less bulky, lighter, and more reasonable in cost, Anita explains, individuals can handle and afford quality equipment to produce videos for broadcast on their own. Looking back on her career, Anita notes that although she has won awards and honors for some of her productions, her proudest accomplishment is just doing her job. "Mastering a technology obstacle in order to better tell a story from a visual perspective gives me a great deal of satisfaction."
