ENTRY TIP: Job title is what you'd put on a business card that indicates your position at your organization.

Role on Entry is the particular function you performed on an Emmy Award Entry!

Many of these are of course similar, but some job titles don't directly translate to a job function performed on a particular project.

For the purposes of regional Emmy Award statuette eligibility, your ROLE is the determining factor over JOB TITLE!

Don't forget! There's a discount if you get that entry in before 2022 disappears! ENTER HERE: https://natasmichigan.org/

There's nothing better than industry advice from our member of the month 🙌

"I take every story I do seriously. I work really hard on making them as good as I can and I think that’s really the secret," said Rob Wolchek. "Work hard on your writing and interviewing, and try to be clever and entertaining while delivering the news. Afterall, we are on TV which is an honor. Many people will see your work so make your stories special. Put on a show and do stories you are proud of."

What's better than Monday motivation from our member of the month and Fox 2 Investigative Reporter Rob Wolchek!? Let us know which tip is getting you through this week 👇

"When I was a general assignment reporter at my first full-time TV job, I was low man on the totem pole," said Wolchek. "So, I decided I would take all the lousy stories they gave me and make them the best stories on the newscast through sheer creativity and effort. Getting all those bad stories for three years and somehow bringing them to life taught me how to be a better storyteller."

☑️ Be fearless - "When I came to Detroit, I came with the attitude of “wait until they get a load of me!” I did what I thought was entertaining and interesting without worrying about friends and family judging me."

☑️ Don’t be afraid to show your work to other people you work with - "I show my work to people before it airs and ask their opinions. If they say something isn’t good I will change it."

☑️ Sometimes your camera man, producer or editor will come up with a good line.. Use it - "I’m the guy who’s face is on TV, so if somebody comes up with an idea that’s better than mine, I’m happy to use it!"

In 2022, I was inducted into the Michigan EMMY Chapter - NATAS Silver Circle, wrote two books (for release in 2023) and learned how to solve the Rubik's Cube! (Even loftier goals are ahead for 2023)
Everybody who knows me knows I love deals. This Michigan EMMY Chapter - NATAS flash sale is just that for all my fellow journalism and communications friends! Membership is $25 now through 11:59 p.m. Friday versus the $45 or $75 it'll cost you after that when you submit for an Emmy Award. Don't wait!

Had so much fun and learned a lot with Michigan EMMY Chapter - NATAS
VERY SPECIAL DAY for very special person. Our Assistant News Director, Jon McCrary, was inducted into the prestigious, Michigan EMMY Chapter - NATAS Silver Circle this afternoon in Detroit. Membership in the Silver Circle is reserved for those with 25 years or more of distinguished service to the industry. Jon and I go way back! On my very first day working at News Channel 3 WWMT TV, back in 1989, Jon and I went to Delton to work on a story about farming in West Michigan. Congratulations, Jon!
Congratulations to my partner, Carolyn Clifford WXYZ, on joining the Silver Circle for her 25+ years of great work in television!
Happy to share the anchor desk with her nightly and to call her a dear colleague and friend. Carolyn has a huge heart and love for her wonderful family and this community.
We were so happy to join you on this special day for this recognition you so richly deserve—and have earned!
