I’ve seen rows of iMacs in newsroom live shots before... surprising for a company that does everything else el cheapo...

 

The only place I've seen rows of iMacs in a newsroom was KAET's "Cronkite News" (produced by Arizona State University's Cronkite School of Journalism, which is a training ground on the lines of KOMU). Macs are still well used in educational institutions.

Some of Scripps quality is lower than that... coincidence? 🤔

ITV News (produced by ITN) use PCs in the newsrooms. And a quick look around it appears PCs are used in their franchises in the PCRs and the newsdesks.  However the newsrooms appear to have a decent portion of Macs.

National news at ITN may still PC's but I know most other departments (including regions) made the switch to macs when they moved their email client over to gmail.

 

EDIT: Here's ann article back from 2011: https://www.computerworlduk.com/it-vendors/itv-switches-to-google-and-apple-3293148/

 

Quick google search brought up these images.
