I am actually referring to the 6 o'clock broadcast every night. I didn't see last nights broadcast, because I was at a hockey game. Here's what I'm talking about.
Let's say you have the following stories:
1) Scott Peterson jury verdict
2) Death of UT Police officer in crash
3) Tencare going away
How do you (the 6 news team) determine which gets priority? How do you determine how long you spend on each story? If you have video, do you run it before or after the story?
Exactly when do you start working on the 6 o'clock show (3pm or earlier?).
If there's a breaking story during the show, how does that info get to the set? (Normally done by the "ear piece, I think).
Maybe a story on "behind the scenes with the 6 news team." That would be cool. It may interest people to see exactly how you develop a story from it's beginning to air from a lay perspective. (CAN I HOST THE PROGRAM???)
Give us the "behind the news" story.
Hmmm. That's something to consider. Do you mean this "behind the news" story is a story broadcast in a newscast, or do you mean it's a feature story on this Web site?
