In June, the coaching team of Beth Johnson and Ross Becker from Top News Talent spent a week “nose to nose” with the news team from KAAL-TV ABC 6 in Rochester, Minnesota.  

It’s a young team with veterans on the anchor desk.  News Director Brianna Cook is a former reporter and anchor at the station and brings the legacy information to the team, but the Top News Talent team was needed to help the young reporters and producers grow into their roles.

After the week, Brianna shared her experience with this new way of training and coaching.  She said, “The Top News Talent team’s approach is unique and it works! My reporters and producers loved the one-on-one attention. They also liked that they got hands-on coaching during their work day. Everyone was left feeling inspired, refreshed and ready to implement some great changes to improve our newsroom. I highly recommend TNT!”

Thank you KAAL for a great week.
