Broadcast news is one of the largest organizations in the television industry. During the past twenty years, our nation has seen a tremendous growth in the dissemination of television news, primarily via cable. A new paradigm shift in television news was created with the advent of the 24-hour News Network. Through this format, the industry re-invented itself and discovered a whole new audience of eager viewers.
