Welcome to CSR Nation
When I first started reporting many, many moons ago, it was just myself and my writer. As time went by, my writer was joined with a hookup to my own personal computer and then to many computers for Realtime and now hooking up via Skype and WebEx, along with hookups and teleconferencing. The job of a reporter is a dynamic one, but what about the renumeration? Recently, in NYC and from what I have read online, many agencies are bundling the Rough and Realtime paying the Reporter for only one service with no fee to the Reporter for set up. Our job today requires a much high degree of technological skill, trouble shooting, providing of laptops and the attendant stress level that goes along with providing these services. If this is the new normal for reporters, then our rates should reflect this, but I do not see that happening. Any thoughts?
