News Gathering –
Once upon a time this meant purchasing news wires from agencies, now it includes emailed photos and videos from the public, automatically captured audio and video from other stations, blog sites, and RSS feeds (not to mention your own copy).
News Management –
How does the editor inform the journalists that they are working together on a story? How does a journalist drag and drop a photo into the copy? How do you know which audio clips are available on your radio playout system?
News Distribution –
How do you distribute different renditions of the same story; to web, newsprint, radio, TV, SMS and MMS, at the same time?
