Good morning. It’s Wednesday April 4, 2018 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!


Stephanie Drachkovitch44 Blue Co-Founder and President, tells Cynopsis what her first job in the media business was – and what she learned from it.
“My first official paying job in the industry was Production Assistant on AM Northwest on KATU in Portland, Oregon! It was a live daily 9 am show that came out of Good Morning America on the ABC affiliate. My job was to warm up the audience, run teleprompter, back-time the show in the booth next to the director, gather props and do all of the testing for the weekly Household Hints segment, research segment ideas, cold-call guests, write scripts…you name it! I had to be at work by 6 am five days a week, 52 weeks a year.” 
What I learned:
  • If you’re on time, you’re late, and if you’re early, you’re on time.
  • You must be fearless and “act like you been there”—when you’re a PA from Portland and have to call the White House or the US Olympic Committee you just had to muster up the courage and do it!
  • If you spill red wine on a white tablecloth, you can get it out by pouring white wine on it (my first ever Household Hint!).
