What it takes to be an anchorwoman in Kazakhstani television

It’s no secret that almost every journalist who started a career in the news wants to achieve a position as an anchorman or an anchorwoman of their program or network. Being on the screen on a daily basis with the most important news is a dream of every journalist, but only a few of them can achieve that dream. In this post, you can find useful advices from the most popular anchorwomen on “Almaty” channel. Let’s look at her history of success.

Anastasia, can you tell our readers a little bit about yourself?

Hello, my name is Anastasia Solntseva. This is my story of how I work on TV in Almaty. In my everyday life, everyone calls me Nastya. This fall will be my one year anniversary working at Almaty Channel. This channel broadcasts not only in Almaty, but also in the capital; Astana. Before becoming a TV anchor and broadcasting the news, I was an editor for the station. Before that position, I had a few others including journalist, director and video engineer. I have now finally achieved my goal. There is a very good proverb that I follow in my career, “Every soldier is considered bad unless he tries to become a colonel.” So I was dreaming and working hard to become an anchor.

Why did you decide to study journalism? It was a dream of yours since childhood?

I have two degrees. The first degree is in Philology. The second one is almost the same but from a journalistic perspective. Probably at that moment in my life, no one was asking me about the reasons for getting my second degree which is almost the same as the first. But I understood that I needed to find myself and figure out who exactly I wanted to be. And it was my dream, since childhood, to be a journalist. I remember that when I was a kid, I imagined my own media channel in my mind and had a lot of broadcasting programs about sports and gardening. I even made up movies and sounded it only when I was alone so nobody thought that I was bad. The years went by, but my dreams stayed the same. Thus, I decided to study journalism at St Petersburg State University, the same university where the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, studied.

How did your career start?

It didn’t start easily. After a few not successful attempts working at a newspaper, I finally ended up applying to a music show as a reporter. At that moment, I couldn’t do much.  Working as a journalist is not only about showing off on the screen to be seen by all the neighbors, but trying to interview a person who doesn’t like to communicate is a very difficult process. Plus being a journalist is an extraordinarily cynical job, which a correspondent should have,  because of the many tragedies, fires, murdering, etc he or she has to cover. I think if I have been informed in advance about the job, I would have thought it over many times whether I should work at this position. After all, journalism is like a maze; no going back but only forward. At the start of my career I was lucky I had been accepted, but at that time it was not the point. The main thing was to keep afloat because the ride was very fast.

Usually journalists are always behind the big screen, but you have reached your goal and now you are working at the national channel and cover the most important news on screen. Can you give our readers, please, tips on how to reach your goal and continue to go towards success?

At the beginning, journalists should find an answer to this question by him/herself. While the time goes by, life arranges things. Some people have a very good start, and then other more important issues come up, like family and children. Career has always been number one for me. I always wanted to reach a final point and then open new horizons. This is the way I can define my career from the beginning and now: low level reporter, low level reporter in the news, correspondent of the information. department chief, director, news and radio anchor, and finally a TV presenter. It’s obvious that the career path is tough, and I wouldn’t advise it to anyone else. It’s very important that your family believes in you, and even if you don’t get paid much they wouldn’t torture you with that. The position of the journalist doesn’t entitle anyone to a high salary. I think that it’s very important to draw an image of yourself explaining who and where you are. This picture should eventually become realistic. You shouldn’t pay attention to the limitations, because there are very many people in the variety of professions with some other limitations. And finally, the right manners and big amount of knowledge will lead to success.

Can you share with us the funniest story in your professional practice?

There are many. Considering some in the studio, some of the guests without knowing the rules of the show may simply stand up and start walking out of the studio while on air thinking that he or she is invisible to the cameras. There could also be a grasshopper that just flew into the studio and an operator like me will freak out because i’m very afraid of such flies.

Do you get nervous before going on air?  And how do you control this feeling? For example some of the anchors are doing this:

And even this:

tumblr_inline_mjporwO8XM1qz4rgp

             

Moreover, some of them are doing this:

tumblr_inline_mk3o09xxw71qz4rgp

           

Being nervous should always take its own place, otherwise the interest will disappear. When someone is announcing in the studio and then you immediately have to start broadcasting live news, there is some kind of feeling close to love that comes up to me. Sometimes you are so stressed that you feel like there are butterflies flying around your stomach. This is the way I feel. It’s more interesting!

Almost in the each KazSocial story we are asking the same question to our popular guests. Dear Anastasia, can you tell us the secret of your success? We cant wait anymore!

The secret of the success is working permanently. Only people who applied all their efforts could be recognized in this profession. This is my own opinion that a person who just began working should work very hard all the way through. You should accept any offer to work on, regardless of its difficulty. Sometime ago I had to accept a few offers which needed a lot of verbal fights, I had to climb to a high post to see the factory because there was no other way around this. Every time I felt that I was testing myself whether I still can do this or not. The most important rival to me was myself. Even now, when I sit in the cozy studio and being served with coffee and ready-to-go texts, something feels awkward. I got used to work hard; I understand that the role of a talking head is not for me. All the news that I am broadcasting were prepared by me, they all are being edited by me, and if there is something that I don’t like, I won’t broadcast it.

Tell us what are your plans for the next 10 years?

Regarding my career, it’s very important to savor what I have already achieved. I have so many projects going on in my mind right now. Some of those include but not limited to social media projects and analytics in TV format. So I am doing everything that helps me to become well educated in different areas of media. When my last name is mentioned somewhere, the channel doesn’t come up in someone’s mind, but everything I have done.

What do you want to say to all our readers and all journalists who just started their career in social media?

Keep working! The lack of scariness, ability to work, and full competence will do its job for you!

Маргулан Сейсембаев: Об идеальных учителях, финской модели обучения и дисциплине

Крупнейшая частная школа осознала, что внедрять финскую модель в чистом виде в Казахстане, не имеет смысла. Нельзя давать детям свободу без "идеальных" учителей.

О проститутках, ЗППП и других сексуальных страстях

У меня обширный сексуальный опыт, и я этим не хвастаюсь. Будь у меня возможность, променял бы это всё на одного партнёра. Но так как с личной жизнью не заладилось, а секс я очень люблю, то приходилось изворачиваться.

Я помню тот день, когда мне позвонили друзья и сообщили: «Она выходит замуж». Часть 2

Я знал дату свадьбы. За неделю до свадьбы в соцсети "Вконтакте" на все мои последние фото, был проставлен лайк с её профиля. Сердце забилось сильнее. В душе загорелась наивная, крошечная надежда.

История из моей жизни. Я вспоминаю эти отношения и сама не могу понять - как так произошло? А дело в том, что вы и сами не заметите. Это наступает плавно и динамично.

Дешевые авиабилеты и не только. Какими сайтами воспользоваться лучше всего? Байки о том, что чем раньше вы покупаете билет, тем дешевле, не всегда верны и точны.
