I don't know what size market you're currently in, but I would suggest first making a lateral move doing creative work at a TV station or cable company. Maybe it's different today, but when I worked in midize TV markets, it was an incredible opportunity to be creative with promos, local TV spots, news graphics, etc. They were hungry for folks that were willing to work hard. It's a grind, and the pay is crappy, to be sure. But it WILL give you the chance to build up a reel that can get you noticed.

Some forward-thinking stations will have the same tools as top post houses...and no one who really knows how to use them well. Good luck.
