These days news people are being pulled in many different directions. In addition to getting stories and newscasts on the air, you now have to worry about updating the station's website, Facebook, and Twitter. There's so much stuff to do, you'd better write it all down.

Now you don't have to.

The Broadcast Journalism Pocket Checklist is a digital guide that will make sure you don't forget the most important aspects of your job. Separate sections for reporters, anchors and producers will ensure you take care of the basics and don't miss any elements.
