In the summer, I was the on location producer for a particularly sensitive case in West Sussex for several ITV News Meridian live bulletins. In the satellite truck, I was responsible for the setting up and running of the truck whilst being the access point for the newsdesk and the presenter at the scene.
I attended the police presser for the incident and assisted the presenter with scripting for the live bulletins throughout the day. This included checking the OB’s accuracy, legalities and the technical output back at the studio.
Following the case as it developed throughout the day to get the story out accurate and fast was paramount when we were there with the nationals and syndicating content with ITN.
