The problem with positions like this, you will be doing the 1099 at the end of the year and you dont really get any benefits not unless your union. I've done a few gigs for Discovery a while back, and no more!

Hopefully whomever takes this job will be portrayed in a complementary way. Editing on a reality show can make a person look like a superstar or a goat.
