TV2/Fyn Nyhendskanalen; TV2's news channel for the island of Funen, Denmark; 2017 -- with an unusual countdown:

So an island with a population of less than half a million can manage a news channel but London can't.


Yep - looks like TV2, which unlike DR (the BBC equivalent in Denmark), has regional news operations (DR doesn't), has expanded TV2 Fyn (the regional news operation for the Fyn region) to do 6 hours a day of rolling news. http://www.tv2fyn.dk/node/57451 Looks like this is approaching its second anniversary?

TV2 have invested heavily in Mosart automation systems for their news operations - nationally, regionallly and for their main nationwide news channel. I suspect this has allowed them opportunities to generate more output for less? Behind the scenes at TV2 Fyn for their main bulletin for TV2 is here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2gFA2C14fw

The camera perspective makes it look like the tracked camera elevated at an angle.

Also worth pointing out that TV2 Fyn Nyhedskanalen is effectively leveraging existing production for a well resourced regional news show on TV2.

This is much more like ITV News London producing London Live I guess - in the same way that STV are in Glasgow, Edinburgh etc.

AIUI, both DR and TV2 are state owned - though the current government does have a plan to sell off TV2 (not the first time this has been on the agenda). DR is funded by a licence fee, while the national TV2 service is run on a commercial basis (so, ads and some subscription revenue). TV2 regions also receive funding from the licence fee - I'm pretty sure they are structurally independent of the national TV2.

I'd also note that while TV2 has regional TV, DR is responsible for regional radio services. There was a suggestion last year (in a government report on different media reform options) that the TV2 regions be transferred to DR, but there is not the political appetite for this.

The 10-minute 5 p.m. edition of Heute on Germany's ZDF, 1976 -- I wonder if ZDF was the first broadcaster to use a brick wall as part of the set design (I know they're one of Mouseboy33's pet peeves!):

WSB in Atlanta has done a 22 Box for a snow storm expected to leave 2" of snow. In the past they've been recorded - they ask crews from the field to send a prerecorded stare. However when it's time to go to the reporter it's Live.

So for each live they just overlay one reporter box in the pre-recorded mosaic with a live shot? If the boxes are static and flat that's a pretty straightforward (if slightly dull to set-up) re-sizer or DME job.

Quite right - I'd not included a caveat about DR's radio operations in my 'DR doesn't' do regional news stuff.

I wasn't clear how independent the TV2 regions were from HQ (which I think is/was in Odense - though there is a big Copenhagen operation including the TV2 24 hour news channel) - but I suspect they share common tech platforms to interchange material and benefit from procurement savings, shared training etc.

I'm not sure. I think all of the reporters boxes are recorded but the two larger meteorologist ones are live. I rewound their newscasts on NewsON and it was the same clips throughout the early afternoon. It seemed like it was only used at the beginning and the end of the newscasts to show their prowess. In 2014 it was preproduced. They couldn't actually handle all those signals at once.
