EMB 110 March 22, 2016 Broadcast Journalism News Department Basic Principle of Journalism: (guidelines) Accuracy – the information you convey in news has to be accurate. If not, people will not want to watch the show and ratings will lower. Balance – Provides all sides of an issue. Reporters have to look at all the perspectives of a story. There are many sides to a story. Objectivity (Subjective pieces are editorials, commentaries, analysis, columnists) – the newscast cannot bring their opinions into a news story or draw conclusions. They can only list the facts Fairness – Stories involving people’s lives. Newscast has to try to tell the story without exposing or damaging other people. Ethics – similar to fairness. What you should or should not do. Shaped by audience expectations. Ex: some sexual abuse cases cannot be shown on TV because there is too much evidence that will give away who the victim is. Will not show that case but legally they can. TV News Department News Director Head of the news department, not the GM of the station. Well paid position. If ratings drop they get blamed. Assignment Editor Works news desk Listen to Police scanners Take calls Send reporters to events Producers (Newscast Producer) In charge of content Executive Producer Over sees newscast producers Referred to as “EP’s” Reporters Go out in the field to collect information on a story Photogs (Cameraperson, Shooter) Shoots the video Edits video with the reporter Multi-media Journalists “MMJ” One person band Does the camera and the reporter position Difficult to do well Editors Edit little stories Digital Content/Web Producer/ Social Media Making sure information is accurate Publish content (Side note) News Anchor – Not a college entry job. Have to have experience as a reporter first.
