III. THE ESSENTIALS OF EDITORIAL PLANNING

Editorial Meetings


Regular editorial meetings are essential. These are where staff propose or pitch topics, guests, or stories and from which selections are made for production, or for further consideration.

Editorial Planning/Production Tools


Tools for each step in the planning process need to be developed to coordinate the work of the show’s staff. At WUNC’s The State of Things, their production tools include physical and web-based planning systems, and daily show scripts that include intros, outros, and guest information including names, titles, scheduled air time and location (in-studio, remote, pre-recorded, etc.)
