Television journalism has a variety of opportunities for journalists, as they may write the scripts for the individual presenting the broadcast, or compile video clips into packages or “sacks” to accommodate the story. Television journalism is considered one of the most powerful forms of journalism, as it has the utmost ability to influence the audience. The visual aspect of television broadcasts can strongly sway public opinion, with glossy production of video, sound and graphics. News anchors present stories up to four times per day and become local celebrities. Newsrooms have increasingly begun to collaborate with digital media, producing packages to be distributed on the web.
