Who would be a DVB reporter?

It’s not easy being a journalist. So says Ko Myo Zaw Lin, who was today sent out to the town of Pegu [Bago] to cover the ongoing floods that have affected the country. Asked to do a piece-to-camera, the hapless lad found there was no place to stand which would take in a good visual of the inundated street. So, bravado prevailed and the intrepid reporter waded out to his chest in muddy water to report LIVE from Pegu.

Well done, Myo Zin Lin! Now just hold that position for a while and we’ll be back for an hourly update.
