ANDINI RETURNS TO METRO TV
Andini Effendi is ready for the big stories coming up in Indonesia. The Jakarta native has returned after two years in the U.S. with a master's degree in Global Affairs from New York University. She wanted to be here to lead coverage of the APEC Summit in Bali in October and national elections next year. "I'm overwhelmed and excited to return home and resume my career," she said.
Effendi wanted to be a journalist while in high school. "I watched (anchor) Paula Zahn on CNN and right then I knew," she says. Effendi majored in journalism at Universitas Pelita Harapan. Her first job was at Global TV in Jakarta as a news reporter/anchor. After a short stay at ANTV, she joined Metro TV in 2007 as a reporter. Her most memorable assignments include covering the 2008 Climate Change Conference in Bali and the death of former Indonesian president Soeharto.
During her university years, she was a production intern at Metro TV, "carrying cables, booking guests and handling wardrobe for presenters. And I vowed to make it back as an anchor. "Someday I would like to work for an international news organization. Doing 'Indonesia Now' is great experience for that goal."
