Studio Roles

In order to develop our own individual news bulletins, we each took turns participating in the following studio roles.

Each student had the opportunity to perform the following positions that insured the flow of each of our bulletin run throughs.

  • News Reader
  • Camera Operator: Because the cameras are mostly controlled by a ccu unit in the control room, there was little action required for this role.
  • Floor Manager/Talent Co-ordinator
  • Audio Monitor
  • Autocue Operator: Using the application ‘ezyreader.exe’.
  • Video Recording
  • Director:
    “Floor manager, are you ready?”
    “Tape operator, audio, autocue switcher are you ready?”
    When everyone is ready, the director will say:
    “ Tape operator start recording and floor manager ready to countdown”

Each position plays a vital role in developing a successful news bulletin. Depending on the scale of a production, Syn’s Guide to TV Roles and Responsibilities states that some roles are optional (Billings, 2016).  It was interesting to perform each part. Working as a team allowed us to effectively produce our final bulletins to submit as assessment. I am pleased with the commitment, effort and initiative shown by my fellow classmates.
