Wikipedia defines a Fixer as
Fixer (journalism), someone hired by a foreign correspondent to help arrange a story
Fixer (crime), criminal slang for a person who employs bribes or other pressures to cover up misdeeds or bad publicity; also one who illegally sanitizes a crime scene
World Fixer explains that …
Without fixers, thousands of TV and film productions throughout the world would be impossible every year, tens of thousands of articles and books would never be written and the myriad of corporate activities would never see the light of day.
Simply put, a fixer is your temporary local knowledge when working overseas or at home. They are your ears on the ground before you arrive, your overseas bureau, your airport pickup, your staffer, your security advisor, your translator, local producer or first aider. They are the guide by your side that knows where everything is and how to get it.
