More than the industry leader in job listings since 1986. We are one of the most widely viewed TV news talent databases on the internet.
In 1985, Kent Collins, Adrienne Laurent and Mark Shilstone, professors at The University of Missouri-Columbia, saw the need for a centralized, comprehensive source for information on job openings in the television news industry.
They came up with the plan to make job openings available via a futuristic, new invention – voice mail!
Out of this ridiculously simple infancy was born MediaLine – a daily updated, comprehensive source for the most reliable and up to the minute job listings in the television news industry. From a daily updated voice mail message system, MediaLine grew to be the most respected and recognized source for job information in the Television News Industry.
Then came the next evolution – the Internet – and MediaLine became the first place TV news Talent could display their resumes and clips from their resume reels–where hiring managers could, for no charge, find hundreds of potential employees of all different experience levels. At the same time the MediaLine Forum became the first television news insiders could discuss and debate issues in broadcast news.
Now in its fourth decade Medialine is owned and operated by Talentapes, Inc – the premier resume tape service for those in Television News. And with the change of ownership, Medialine takes a monumental leap into the 21st Century with a new design and more modern features than it’s founders could have dreamed of!
The new Medialine is certainly not your grandparents Medialine, but they would be amazed!
