Professional History

Work Experience at Pilot TV Station

  TV Presenter

February 2001 - December 2005

As a TV Presenter, I had an exciting job delivering the latest entertainment news in my home city of Tver. In this role, I developed my expertise in hosting a dynamic and engaging program, one that quickly became the top rating show in my city and region.

  Assistant Editor

On-Air Correspondent

January 2001 - December 2005

February 2000 - January 2001

This key functional role has provided me with skills and tools necessary to select, visualise and edit content for programs. This represented a high level of responsibility in guaranteeing the quality of the final on air production. I gained a reputation for converting concepts to high quality television entertainment.

As a correspondent, I used to be on the run constantly, chasing down new stories and reporting this both live and recorded for later screening for the local morning show. I developed great communication skills by interviewing people on the streets and establishing rapport and getting them to open up.
