The First Light Video DVD: TV Newsroom: News Gathering is an instructional DVD produced specifically for journalism students by Sasha Norkin, Professor at Boston University. The program follows an actual day of news gathering and production at WHDH, the CBS Boston affiliate. It vividly illustrates the roles performed by dozens of people in shaping an evening newscast. Witness the interlocking roles of the WHDH assignment editor, producers, news directors, reporters, writers and photographers in making decisions on what stories to cover and how to cover them. Investigative, political and medical reporters, as well as a sports producer and meteorologist, all jockey for time for their breaking stories, while the executive producer balances priorities throughout the day.
