The best way to get started is through an internship in a small market. Journalists in small markets learn to handle all aspects of the job.  If you are in college now, try to start out with a position with your college's TV station, if possible. Talk to your professors about your goals; they should have connections and be able to refer you to stations for internships or p/t positions.

Early in my career, I started out with internships at magazines and newspapers. I got good experience and made some great connections in the industry.

Good luck!
