The People of Broadcast Journalism - By

00:09 Hello . Welcome to this video on the people of
00:12 broadcast journalism . In the previous video , we talked
00:15 about new vocabulary we use when talking about the news
00:18 for television , Internet and radio . In this video
00:22 , we're going to take a deeper look into the
00:24 people that deliver the news in video or audio form
00:29 . We'll talk about news anchors , correspondents , producers
00:32 and control room operators . Let's start with the anchor
00:38 . The journalist who reads the news on camera is
00:40 called the news anchor . This is the lead journalist
00:46 or journalists of a news program and anchor is the
00:49 host of all of that news programs shows . Sometimes
00:54 the name of this anchor is part of the name
00:56 of the show . For example . NBC Nightly News
00:59 with Lester Holt . Lester Holt hosts this news program
01:03 most nights of the week . The anchors , the
01:05 journalist who reads copy from the teleprompter while the anchor
01:09 is the lead journalists , there are other journalists who
01:11 work on the news and appear on the program .
01:14 These journalists are called correspondence . These correspondents can be
01:22 general journalists or they can have specialties like they may
01:26 have special knowledge about one topic . For example ,
01:30 there are many business correspondence or medical correspondence . They
01:34 may have extra training in business or medicine and therefore
01:38 can better investigate in research those types of news stories
01:42 . Other specialties include correspondents who know a certain area
01:45 of the world really well . Maybe they're from there
01:48 or maybe they just studied that area for many years
01:51 . For example , a Middle East correspondent is someone
01:54 who reports from the Middle East or who covers news
01:57 having to do with the Middle East . They may
02:00 speak a local language or they may know a lot
02:02 about local culture or history and therefore they can better
02:06 investigate and research those types of stories . It's coming
02:11 for a correspondent to travel to where the news is
02:13 happening and report from there that's called being on location
02:22 , correspondents report from locations all across the world .
02:25 For example , if there's a fire football match or
02:28 election , a correspondent will go on location to get
02:31 the story . Another person who is very important in
02:34 broadcast journalism is the producer . A producer decides what
02:39 news stories to show how long each story will be
02:41 and in what order . A producer also directs the
02:48 show as it's being broadcast . They decide in the
02:52 moment if breaking news should interrupt a segment , they
02:55 decide when to take commercial breaks and the producer is
02:58 also the person with the final approval for copy before
03:02 his story is added to a particular programme . The
03:06 producer is not in the studio with the anchor at
03:08 the time of the broadcast . Instead , they work
03:12 alongside control room operators who prepare video clips and it's
03:16 sound and control the teleprompter . Control room operators have
03:23 technical skills rather than journalism degrees . They know how
03:27 to control the machines that help broadcast the news ,
03:30 but not necessarily what is important to include in the
03:33 story . To summarize . We've talked about anchors ,
03:36 types of correspondents , producers and control room operators check
03:41 your understanding of these people involved in broadcasting the news
03:44 and the vocabulary from the first video in the next
03:48 game .
