My name is Heather Gerber and I am behind this website. I have spent 15 years in the broadcast industry working my way up from a small market in Bridgeport, West Virginia, to my hometown of York, Pennsylvania. Through the course of my career, I have been a one-man-band reporter, responsible for shooting, writing, and editing my own stories. I have also, most recently been a news anchor at WPMT FOX-43. I have seen a huge transition in the way in which we gather and distribute our news. For anyone interested in someday becoming a reporter, or those of you currently in the field, it is imperative you learn this new “way.” Social media becoming intertwined with news can be a burden when it’s not used properly, but it can also open doors unlike ever before.
I am currently a graduate student in the Communication Journalism program at Shippensburg University. After my career as both a news reporter and news anchor in the broadcasting industry, I am pursuing a different career path. It is my hope to someday teach aspiring journalists.
