Media - Making contact - How the newsroom works To work with the media on promotional or marketing opportunities your community group needs to have  some idea about how a media newsroom works. Whilst there may be slight differences, most newsrooms function in basically the same way. This help  sheet provides an overview of the workings of a newsroom in order to give you a better understanding of  how they function. What is a newsroom? A newsroom can be defined as:  "an office at a television or radio station or a newspaper where  news is gathered and reports are prepared for broadcasting or publishing." The newsroom is where the stories are gathered, written, put together, edited and assembled for the news  broadcast, telecast or newspaper. Who is in the newsroom? The number of jobs and people working in the newsroom vary depending on the media outlet.  In smaller  media outlets, at suburban weekly newspapers for example the newsroom will probably feature only a  couple of journalists and a photographer. Sometimes the editor will be there, although in many suburban  newspapers the editor has a roving role overseeing a number of newspapers in different offices. In larger media outlets, such as metropolitan newspapers, radio or television, the newsroom is much  bigger, with a larger staff of people. They can include: Journalists/reporters. Photographers. Camera operators.
