Questions For Those Who Got Out

Since those good old days of KUJH, many of us have left the TV world and moved on. I'm thinking it may be time for me to do the same.

Below are some questions, and if any of you would be kind enough to answer them and e-mail me back (or just post them-- I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking of leaving,) I would greatly appreciate it!

What are you doing now?

How did you tailor your resume to your new job, since your new place of employment is different from broadcast journalism? is not an option anymore, so where did you look for a new job?

Is the pay better? (Not looking for an exact figure of course, but any ballpark numbers on improvement would be great!)

Do you miss TV? Would you go back? Is leaving worth it?

Thanks again!
