How to Write a News Script
Telling the Story With Audio and Video
Collect the information: who, what, where, when and how. Knowing who cares--who this is going to affect the most and how--matters as well.
Provide enough information in the first 15 seconds to give the basic overview of the entire story.
Arrange the background information and the details to fill in the rest of the story in the remaining 5 to 15 seconds. This may be cut so that other, newer stories can be included in the broadcast.
Think about how the story will sound "on air." If a word or phrase could be challenged, re-state it, backing it up with verifiable facts and specifics.
Time the edited video story for exact length, then read aloud while timing it and adjust it to fit the video length. Screen the complete audio/video package for content, conciseness and accuracy.
