Local News Service / Fox 29

The Internship Portfolio of Brian Donathan

First Full Day With LNS

Finally my requests were paying off.  The Local News Service crew had moved into their new room on Fox29’s second floor, and I was going to be spending 1 to2 nights per week working alongside their staff.

At this point the, the Fox side of LNS was operating with 3 different desk editors and a small group of photographers.

The operation of LNS is simple on the surface.  Time will tell how well it all works together.  Here are some basics:

The LNS office located within NBC10 runs the dayside of the operation.  Stories are selected based on events both stations would require, such as a press conferences, breaking news, etc. (typically where a reporter is not being sent).  Photogs shoot VO and sometimes gather SOT that is then ingested at NBC10’s location and fed back to Fox29.

In the evening, Fox29’s LNS office handles all video gathering.  News events follow the same criteria, and most are agreed upon by both LNS offices before all coverage transitions over to LNS at Fox29.
