Luxembourg - Visit at RTL City

I am a journalist and no matter how my career path has derailed now, I will always be a journalist. I can't put it in words, but I guess it's like any other job. There was a saying that if you wake up a surgeon he will know how to perform a surgery or something like that. For me, wherever I will be in life and whatever I will do, I can always read the news, know exactly what deserves to be breaking news, what is the order in a news bulletin and how the mixing console (I'm sorry I don't know other term, we called it mixer) works. A little self promotion, never  hurt anyone!

Unfortunately in Luxembourg because of the language problem, I can be just a communicator, but of course that once I've moved here I've researched possible working places, especially in radio. RTL was of course on the list, but because it would take me ages to learn Luxembourgish at such a level as to freely speak it on the radio I've given up. So when my friend invited me to visit the new RTL City in Luxembourg with her MBA colleagues I did not hesitate for a second.

I was eager to grasp it all, I've liked the Luxembourgish radio history and the presentation of the RTL Group offered to us by one of the CEO's and was sad that little by little radio is dying, although the new RTL City in Luxembourg has 18 radio studios and only 3 TV studios. We visited three or four studios and we had the opportunity to take pictures and ask questions and we had a very nice dinner so all in all a good evening in Luxembourg City. For a moment I was back in time and I was where I was supposed to be, in a radio studio.

If nothing happened after this visit, I know now that journalism has to be back in my life. I miss it so much and no matter how much knowledge I've accumulated in the past few years, my heart will forever be in radio.

That being said, thank you so, so much, Clara for this opportunity! I don't know if you will ever read this, but it really helped.

I'll leave you with some pictures.
