Job Description for Broadcast Engineer

Broadcast engineers work in broadcast media — traditionally television and radio — to help ensure these transmissions meet organizational standards at all times. The engineer works to monitor, maintain, and repair anything that can interfere with the transmission signal. Additionally, they help modulate volume and (in the case of visual media) the color palette. The engineer ensures that remote broadcasts — those that take place on location outside the studio, such as with news reporters on scene — are also received and broadcast seamlessly over the airwaves.
