Breaking News

The change in tone of an assignment editor’s voice when news breaks can give me a rush similar to going over the peak of a roller coaster and looking straight down.

It’s a challenge. Web producers like me need to decide what information is trustworthy, what photos the station can use, prioritize what information to publish, how, and on what platforms — within seconds. Then, carry it all out, quickly and accurately … and don’t get sued.
