News Writers


Recommended Posts

Just curious...I live in the Los Angeles DMA, so I know news writers still exist. Writers seemed to have a place in newsrooms across all markets at one point. As the business has evolved, that seems to have changed. Do writers still exist in the mid-level markets or is that handled solely by producers/reporters/anchors? Is having a writer something that only exists at the network and say top ten market level?

Some stations might call them associate producers or assistant producers, but, yeah, you won't find much writing help outside the top ten markets. A lot of the extra jobs were dumped on producers over the years as TV groups cut the headcounts.
