Election Coverage Autumn 2014
Tuesday 4 November
Crew Call: 6pm in ATLAS
Broadcast: 7pm to 10pm
NewsTeam will produce live election coverage on election night. Coverage begins at 7pm and will last until 10pm as long as there is plenty to report.
The broadcast is not continuous, but is divided into roughly 5- to 10-minute segments that start at the top and bottom of each hour. Each segment will have its own producer and anchor team. Reporters will team up with photographers to do LIVESTREAM reports from certain locations, such as candidate parties in restaurants and hotels.
The election night coverage will combine both Tuesday and Thursday crews. The Tuesday crew will likely contribute packages and same-day stories that they can work on in the morning. Other production elements will include studio interviews with experts that may be previously recorded or conducted live.
