Episode 4: Oriana Schwindt (@Schwindter), former TV/Media reporter now exploring Centerville, USA


From a TV-loving high-schooler who learned about the TV business on the great old “Television Without Pity” message boards to actually writing about TV at TV Guide Magazine and Variety among others…We covered Oriana’s journey to becoming one of the best TV-ratings reporters out there.

There’s a Mark Cuban quote that “Nobody ever quit something they’re good at,” but Oriana was not merely good as a TV ratings reporter, she was great.

And she quit!

Oriana gave up the TV beat for Centerville, USA. A project where she’s going to the geographic center of every state in the USA to find out what America is like in those places and write about it. We talked about how the project is going so far, some of the stuff that’s coming up and… why her parents are worried.

You can see her Centerville, USA work on a delayed basis on Medium or by becoming a patron on Patreon. You can find her on Twitter at @Schwindter.
