creating content, delivering results
From editorial leadership positions in local news to network and syndicated news magazine producing, I have always taken pride in my ability to prioritze duties and keep calm under pressure. The competition rarley would report breaking news stories we didn't know about. I always worked to verify information quickly and sent social media notifications as fast as possible. I also developed original content and published story updates on the stations website and digital platforms.
Understanding my clients goals, creativily pitching ideas while advising them with realistic outcomes given the scope. I approached all projects determined to meet and exceed the clients expectations with through reporting and constent communication ensuring a happy client in the end. I assisted agencies with my broadcast expertise maximizing results whether it be a hard news story or celebrity driven campaign for beauty, entertainment and lifestyle clients.
Clients I provided notification and distribution services for to online and broadcast outlets.
When a toddler was killed by an abusive couple caring for him I published multiple updates about Jasper. An important story to be told even when we couldn't send a crew to Vader, WA for court hearings.
A Port Orchard man pleaded guilty to first-degree animal cruelty after he punched an arthritic 13-year-old dog so hard that the animal's heart was displaced. No other station in town reported but I posted the story online.
Kiro-7's breaking news coverage of the shooting at Marysville Pillchuck High school shooting on October 24, 2014 earned our team two local news Emmys for breaking news. Scanner challenged at the time because of the distance, I was still able to pick up enough start crews that direction. and strategic assignments helped Kiro-7 take the lead in confirmed information first. .
“I've worked with many Assignment Editors over the years. You were always professional, helpful, thorough, courteous and hard-working...along with all that you have good prespective . I am honored to have worked with you”
“For the past four years, Lance Enger has sat on the assignment desk, guiding KIRO to many breaking news wins. Not only is he an excellent scanner-listener, he also helped us install and implement our scanner system. And, no one knows about shootings in Belltown before Lance!”

His understanding of the city, it’s culture and people lends a depth to his abilities in identifying what matters most to the community.
