This week's bulletin was editorially stronger and was done in one take.

For whatever reason, we had techical difficulties with the VTs/graphics but we got through it; the apology and the whole 'get on with it' attitude was well done by Joey.

Stu and Catherine's packages stood out this week as they showed initiative to get the most out of their stories. The bulletin would have been a bit flat if it wasn't for them; definitly this week's golden reporters!

The sport was very well written by Jason, particularly the story about the footballer's heart attack. I was also praised by Brian for the way I handled this part on the actual bulletin.

On a personal note, I was happy with my presentation of the sport, but the little mistakes still happen, which is frustrating.

The change-over between news and sport is still an issue, although everyone on the floor and in the gallery has a difficult job. Like Brian said, we will get used to the these news days and the pressures that come with it.

I thought Veronica communicated with me well from the gallery; I know there were problems up there, but down on the floor it seemed okay!

Overall, a step in the right direction.

  1. Glenners! The man. Good short summary of today's proceedings and hopefully news has taken a step in the right direction now. Next week, the headline sequences need to be sharper I think and us newsey people have got to build a bank of stories. P.s. Great cover drive earlier
