A newsroom hosts a number of media specialists with different roles, from news editors writing stories, reporting department collating external stories and news, and the planning department preparing coverage of important events, to a specialised department for introducing guests, providing information, analytics and updates. Ultimately, all these parts work together to support the news bulletin. But it is the news producers who prepare the news bulletin and coordinate all those parts. This course will outline a news producer’s responsibilities, from checking news to timekeeping and maintaining editorial policy.
