Now let’s talk about the professional life of Rachel Schofield, shall we?

Professional Journey of Rachel Schofield:

Rachel Schofield started her career as a journalist at the BBC in 1999. She was a reporter at BBC Radio Newcastle and also for BBC Look North. Schofield also worked for BBC Radio Four for some time as a reporter, where she covered stories about consumer and social affairs and handling issues from American senators to French prostitutes. She later joined BBC News team. Rachel resigned from her post at BBC News in September 2012, although she came back on a freelance basis.

In an interview with TV Newsroom, she reveals everything about her career. From her best and worst on-air moment, her reason behind choosing News broadcasting, to giving advice to the newcomers.

And talking about her Best on-air moment, Schofield said,

“a good day is knowing you’ve grilled a politician to just the right degree of crispiness, kept a boisterous discussion in hand and got the best out of a nervous guest who’s not at home in the studio. It’s not glamorous, but it’s the staple of the news presenter.”

Also, she shared the Worst on-air moment and said,

Just the usual Auntie’s Bloomers fodder I’m afraid – attempts to pronouce obscure Polish political leaders degenerating into giggles; co-presenters writing rude comments on scripts to try to put you off your stride; mouthfuls of sandwich at just the wrong moment. The studio is actually a pretty tame environment – if you want really cracking cock-up stories you need to be out in the field.

Moreover, she revealed her reason for choosing the news broadcasting and explained,

The variety of working on a rolling news channel is fantastic – it’s stretching mentally to be across so many issues and it’s endlessly interesting. And knowing you are the first port of call for people who want reliable, accurate information with as much analysis and context as we provide is a real privilege. Is that too pompous? How about – a highly trained make-up artist can transform you from bleary-eyed, dreadful-haired monster to super-groomed screen totty in 20 minutes?

Furthermore, she gave the words of wisdom for the aspiring journalist and stated,

“Show you mean business by getting as much unpaid experience under your belt as possible in your spare time. Saying – when you’re 18 – that you want to be a journalist but you’ve never spent time on a local paper or in a newsroom won’t impress anyone. Know your facts – politically and internationally – but don’t be scared to suggest new ideas and creative treatments too. News can become very formulaic and a bit of radical thinking comes in useful. And everyone says it, but you don’t need to do Media Studies … get the best degree you can and bags of work experience and then look into postgraduate courses."

In her more than a decade-long career, she surely has become very popular and is in a lot of demand. The exact figures of her salary and net worth have not surfaced in the media, but we can say that she earns in millions.
