On today’s episode, we’re joined by Russell Midori, a TV photojournalist and the president of Military Veterans in Journalism, an organization that mentors veterans who want to work in journalism after their service concludes.

Russell talked about his military career and transition to video work, shooting, editing and producing features, news stories, and documentaries. He gave examples of work he did and discussed the dangers of the job. This is a good episode if you’re interested in working behind the scenes in TV news.

Russell also spoke about Military Veterans in Journalism and the work the group is doing, as well as why military veterans make good newsroom employees.
