A Survey of Electronic News Gathering and Television News Coverage.
Stone, Vernon A.; DiCioccio, John P.
A 1977 national survey of 216 television stations that use electronic news gathering (ENG) and of 224 stations that still use only film for camera reporting showed little difference in the types of news the two kinds of operations covered, although stations using ENG shot more stories than did those still using only film. The persons making editorial decisions in ENG were typically the same ones that made such decisions for film. Reporters, producers, and photographers seemed to adapt well to ENG, but engineers at a number of stations were reported to have problems using the new equipment. Nine tables of data are included.
