    Our Top Story Tonight: The Project Management of TV News

    Project management often involves wrangling many moving parts, in order to collectively attain a goal. But, in the world of broadcasting, the goal itself can change in an instant. Producing a 30-minute local newscast is about managing a new project every single day—and sometimes more than one a day. Learn how producers balance quality, costs and risks in order to create a seamless bit of television that is meticulously timed to the second.
