"Television Journalism is a delicate balance of serving public good and private gain." - Jessica Savitch
Television has become an integral part of our lives and radio stations are back with a bang. Both these media are so powerful that electronic journalism surged ahead of the print media. Television journalism has become so strong that it has produced its own stars such as Barkha Dutt, Rajat Sharma, Vinod Dua, Rajdeep Sardesai, and the like who have carved a niche for themselves.
News anchor examines, interpret news stories and introduce videotaped news or live transmissions from on-the-scene reporters. Newscaster's at large stations and networks usually specialize in a particular type of news, such as sports or weather.
Reporters investigate, look at documents, observe events at the scene, and interview people. Reporters take notes and at their office, they organize the material, determine the focus or emphasis, write their stories, and edit accompanying video material. Many reporters enter information or write stories using laptop computers and electronically submit the material to their offices from remote locations. In some cases, news writer writes a story from information collected and submitted by reporters. Every time you write a script for news, they are potentially touching the lives of millions of people through Radio and Television.
Radio and Television reporters often compose stories and report "live" from the scene. At times, they later tape an introduction to or commentary on their story in the studio. Some reporters specialize in fields such as health, politics, foreign affairs, sports, theater, consumer affairs, social events, science, business, or religion. Investigative reporters cover stories that may take many days or weeks of information gathering. Some television use teams of reporters instead of assigning each reporter one specific topic, allowing reporters to cover a greater variety of stories. News teams may include reporters, editors and graphic artists working together to complete a story.
