Reporting Across Platforms

Reporting across platforms requires a different approach than working in a single medium. Not sure what you need for print, online or broadcast? Ask these questions to guide your reporting process.

Print

  • What aspects of the story could be told more effectively if you had more space?
  • What aspects of the story could be told well without many visuals?

Broadcast

  • What aspects of the story could be told more effectively with video?
  • What sounds could be incorporated to help capture the story?

Online

  • What links would be useful?
  • What short video could help tell the story?
