Anyone know anyone in this MOS? What's the job like? What's a normal day like?
Some PAO Lite Colonel thought I would be "a great fit" for that MOS and gave me his recruiting pitch. I totally didn't listen.
46R, Broadcast Journalist.
I was interested at one time in reclassing to that MOS.
There are a few different paths that can be worked at, and the majority of the positions are shitty.
1. You can work for AFN (Armed Forces Network). It is essentially a radio/tv station, and all the jobs that go along with it.
2. You can work at the Whitehouse, doing all of their broadcasting BS.
3. What you will be doing: Each BCT (Brigade Combat Team) has 3 of those positions if I remember correctly. Like one E-5 and 2 E-4s. You basically follow the brigade around, going to all of the hot spots, acting as a correspondent of sorts. Combat, ugly stuff, and some of the good that happens out there.
Cool job if you land a good duty station/position, with high potential for work on the outside, but overall, blah...
