The anchors should lead with a welcome (*This is Marblehead Youth News and I thank you for tuning in.") followed by an overview of all the news to come, in about 1 minute.
The Anchor will provide an overview of the show and prepare "leads" to each news segment, as in, "Let's hear from ___ about school news" or "And here's ___ with an update on sports."
The Anchor will also write an introduction to each Feature.
Anchors will be supported with news/information/copy 1-2 weeks before Tape Day.
Reporters should encapsulate news into 1-2 minute segments.
(Video may air over; for example: talking about new soccer uniforms? New uniforms will be shown.)
Reporters should focus on who/what/where.
