Spearheading investigative assignments
From time to time, we may ask you to report on a specific topic related to your team – it’s up to you to get the quotes and information that’ll make the story come together.

Creating video reports and join as a guest for our live shows
Extend your portfolio and experience to in-front of the camera as well
