    How COVID-19 Changed TV News (Interview: Marcus Harun)

    How COVID-19 Changed TV News (Interview: Marcus Harun)

    📰 Essential Journalists 🤳🏼

    Producer Marcus Harun discusses his new documentary; Essential Journalists: How Coronavirus Changed TV News

    Armed with 6-foot microphone poles, mask-clad reporters are filming interviews through windows to tell the stories of their communities, while worrying about what illness they may bring back to their families. National news producer Marcus Harun remotely interviews dozens of journalists from across the country about how the coronavirus impacted their jobs and the frightening reality of heading out into the danger zone to report vital information to the public. Some of the country’s most-watched news programs are being broadcast out of the anchor’s basements as the industry adopted work-from-home plans for the first time. At the national level, CBS lost a producer to COVID-19 and NBC lost an audio technician; a CNN anchor continued to host his show while suffering from the virus. In local news, producers grapple with limited resources to telecommute and anchors struggle to babysit their children during live newscasts. This film about social distancing was produced, edited, and completed all while social distancing from home in a New York apartment.
