A day in the life… Via a blog

The morning editor of BBC News 24, Simon Waldman has given us a glimpse ito ‘Waldman’s world’ via posting on his blog.

He’s basically blogged his way through his morning shift, presumably to be read by those who were surreptitiously keeping up to date via a browser hidden behind the spreadsheet.

The blog gives a good insight into the challenges that face a rolling TV news channel. Some stories can be planned for, they’re already in the diary but lots are reported on by cool, calm and collected newsreaders reading out a script written by a frantic, overworked script writers and news Editors. As the blog shows too, sometimes as the nature of events unfold, the news team have to change things quickly.

You can read all about Simon’s shift here.

Your last comment had nothing to do with the post… Come to think of it, this one doesn’t either, however I do believe in freedom of speech 🙂
