A Working Newsroom: 519 Online News


Our reporters find stories and shoot them
on their own time. A good story needs an interesting topic, access and great visuals. Production
day begins with an early morning meeting that decides the lineup for the newscast. Afterwards,
reporters start editing their stories. Efficiency is key in order to make deadline. “Final Cut
just crashed and I lost all my clips so I have to do it all over again and I don’t have
much time for that.” “Are you worried about time at all?” “Not right now, I think I’ll
be good, OK so once you guys get out of my way I’ll be alright.” It’s always a pretty
long day. The anchors bits are recorded and edited or we go live. And that’s how our newscast
is made. This is my script. And the light’s gone, ha ha.
