As a host on NewsWatch, Andrew Tropeano is in a position coveted by current and aspiring journalists. Yet, in a recent conversation with Interview.net, he made one thing perfectly clear: He is just getting started.
“I always knew I wanted to work in the field of journalism,” says Tropeano, “and I’m excited to be a part of such an exciting program and company.”
For the last eight years, NewsWatch has given Tropeano the opportunity to interview celebrities, leaders of Fortune 500 companies, and some of the sharpest minds working in tech. In addition to hosting duties, Andrew now also works as executive producer of the award-winning syndicated news program.
Since 1990, NewsWatch has informed its viewers on the latest developments in news and entertainment and given a platform for innovators from large and small businesses alike to show their stuff for a national television audience. Those behind the program are proud to say they have “helped all size companies and organizations achieve success.”
But, Tropeano thinks they can do better. His long-term goals for NewsWatch include expanding the show to more channels and online platforms, driving up its ratings, adding to the its reputation, and helping the show “become the go-to-source for everything from tech, to travel, to health.”
That may be ambitious, but Andrew has made clear he loves what he does, meaning that, for him, none of this work. And, he’s careful not to let setbacks and delays frustrate him, citing patience as the most valuable lesson he’s taken from his career. For those with similar aspirations, Tropeano’s advice is pretty simple: “Don’t give up,” and, “don’t let anyone else define success for you.”
