As writers working toward a career in writing, you should seriously consider the market potential of RADIO DRAMA delivered via the internet.
There is an ever-growing number of such outlets.
Audio-only writing instills a story-discipline that will serve you well in a film career. If you combine that with a day-job in journalism, you train for the fast-paced, demanding, tailored-to-order world of Film Production (Hollywood or not, time is money is the prevailing adage.)
Journalism makes you fast and accurate with your words, and Radio Drama writing gives you drill in organizing a story.
In addition to this, I'd suggest you read the following e-book:
Those are short-stories from magazines published during the RADIO DRAMA ERA. Besides being interesting stories, and by the creator of the character ZORRO (one of my favorites), who also wrote for film, the underlying story-structure and thematic material are precisely relevant to today's web-based radio-drama world.
Put all that together, you will have a long and lucrative career.
But don't think it's easy money. This stuff is very hard work unless you're born with enormous talent.
