This week I talked to Erica Mandy, an award-winning TV news reporter and host of the daily news podcast, theNewsWorthy, about making the transition from TV journalism to entrepreneurship. We talk about the difficulties she's faced in being her own boss, why neutral/unbiased news is more important than ever, and what it was like to work for a Sinclair-owned news station.
As a TV news reporter, Erica was live on the scene during terrorist attacks, wildfires and federal court rulings, to name a few. She's interviewed politicians, CEOs, experts, and everyday people doing extraordinary things.
Erica quit her job as a Los Angeles TV news reporter to launch theNewsWorthy: a daily roundup of politics, tech, business and entertainment that makes it faster, easier and way more fun to get all the news you need to know.
