Charlie Pellett, an anchor on Bloomberg Radio, talks about his career and his work schedule.
Here is an excerpt:
What has been your career highlight to date?
At Bloomberg, a highlight continues to be being a member of our broadcast team. As hokey as it sounds, I love meeting listeners and visitors.
I was also part of the original team that launched Bloomberg TV, back when it was called Bloomberg Information Television or BIT, internally. I was one of the first people to broadcast for Bloomberg TV from the New York Stock Exchange. In those early days of Bloomberg TV, we had to hit our own video B-roll, graphics and run the script. All of that while construction was going on around you in an open studio.
Another highlight has been working with our radio broadcast affiliates. I had one affiliate in San Francisco where I was supposed to do a :45 second hit every day, but that quickly evolved into a longer 3 or 4 minute banter back and forth. Today I am privileged to fill in on 1010 WINS for Bloomberg reporters Larry Kofsky and Andrew O’Day when they’re out. That is sort of full-circle for me, because I spent 10 years working at WINS before Bloomberg.
What is the most interesting part about what you do?
What’s fascinating about my job is that I love, love, love what I’m doing. I’ve seen Bloomberg Radio expand and mature from its early days into a multimedia operation that spans across numerous platforms. You can hear me afternoons on Bloomberg Radio (11:30AM, Sirius/XM, Bloomberg.com and in the bathrooms here at Bloomberg!) but I get to do other voice over stuff on an as-needed basis. Those can include being the voice on various videos that are used internally.
