TVN 24
For the last 12 years I work for TVN24 – biggest Polish news station in Poland. First, I worked as a researcher and I had the opportunity to work in the field with a camera. After just a few months of internship I was offered a fulltime job as a control room live producer. For the following three years, I was a producer, a senior producer and a field producer of various programs and at various levels. In December 2007, I had a big breakthrough in my career and personal life. I was given a business phone with a built-in camera by my company. I was wondering how I could use it together with my laptop and I discovered that I was able to stream live picture. It worked so well that we started using it on air and I was promoted. So I was going to create and produce the first Polish TV program using Skype to live interview our viewers. It worked and since then I have known that technology may help us to tell stories better and in a way which is easier and closer to viewers. After that, I became the “technology” guy in production. In the next couple of years, I managed to introduce hi-tech virtual studios, a CNN-like hologram (just a hundred-times cheaper), and GSM live broadcast systems of a much better quality at TVN24. At the same time, I worked as a senior producer of various news programs, political talk shows. For the last few years I’m an executive producer of election nights at TVN24 and since 2014 I work as an news editor/producer at Fakty TVN – biggest Polish evening broadcast at 7 pm watched daily by 3.1 million people. Currently I’m working also on a new internet project – vertical video service for mobile phones only. PS. You can trust me, I’m an archeologist with diploma.
