Covering the News

At a hospital, there’s always a doctor “on call.” In a newsroom, there’s an equivalent: the general assignment reporter, sitting by the police scanner, waiting for whatever breaking news the world has to offer. This chapter will provide preparation and practice for that world as well as the somewhat more predictable world of the beat reporter, someone who covers the same general topic day in and day out.
