- The day starts with a morning meeting looking at the prospects for that day's programmes where everyone in the team come up with story ideas.
- Reporters are then sent out on specific stories; this could be a vox pop, a three minute news package or anything in between.
- Producers work on line-up for the programmes deciding which story will go where in the running order.
- Presenters start writing introductions and start writing and cutting headlines and trailers.
- Reporters come back to edit, write and voice their packages.
- The whole team comes together for "ON AIR" and the programme is presented live using the newsroom's own TV gallery and a studio set.
