After completing his studies at Broadcasting School, Andrew Dalton interned at TVNZ in Christchurch.
He’s since transferred to the company’s Wellington bureau. “On paper I'm an Operations Assistant, but my role encompasses a number of tasks,” he says. “I'm a satellite operator, a cameraman, a media exchange specialist and a drone operator.”
In Wellington, Andrew can find himself in any given place at any time, such as filming politicians on their way into parliament or chasing weather around the city. “That's the nature of news, there's never a dull moment. It's fast-paced and exciting, and when a story breaks, you're running on adrenaline.
Andrew says studying at Broadcasting School set him up to achieve what he has so far. “It gave me the skill-set and experiences I needed to go forth into the workforce and launch my career. Broadcasting is a great industry, it's ever-changing and you never know what's around the corner. That’s what makes it so exciting!”
