THE THEORY OF NATURAL PROGRESSION
If you’re a Weekend Anchor in a small market, odds are your next job is not going to be as Main Anchor in a large market. The Theory of Natural Progression suggests your next job will likely be either as a Weekend Anchor in a medium-sized market, or a Weekday Anchor in a small market. (Weekday Anchor in a medium market is not too farfetched either, but that would depend on a variety of factors including the quality of your talent, the needs of the employer and the supply/demand of your “type” within the marketplace.)
There is a natural progression of talent in our industry. And, as you progress, you’ll either move up in job title OR move up market size. If you do both, well then you’ve beaten the odds!
