Braulio Martin was recently promoted to an APC operator at NBC7 San Diego and Telemundo 20.
Martin joined NBC7 as a part-time APC operator in July after previous roles at Five Star AV and KUSI News. He was promoted to his new role on Sept. 19. APC operators are responsible for preparing and operating automated production control systems for live and taped television broadcasts, along with other duties.
Most exciting thing about his new role: “The most exciting thing is that that I play a part in how people digest their news, from shot selection, effects and so much more. Since NBC is a big company, there is virtually unlimited room to grow. That’s very motivating, as I always strive to work my way up and be the best.”
One thing he’s learned about himself in the past year: “I’ve learned I can achieve anything I set my mind to as long as I’m passionate about it. I struggled a little after college because I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I would come across cool freelance opportunities but didn’t feel motivated to pursue some of them. I always questioned why that was. It wasn’t until I started at NBC that I realized that it was because I simply wasn’t passionate about those things. It’s important to do something you enjoy.”
One piece of career advice for others: “Find something you enjoy and push to be the best. Don’t give up. I know it’s very discouraging when you don’t hear back from a prospective job or find out they moved on without you. Be positive and keep chugging along. Keep applying and even reach out to those companies and their HR rep if you truly believe you would be a great fit.”
