Covering Live TV

Columbia Journalism Review

In an op-ed in the Columbia Journalism Review, Mark Lukasiewicz, dean of the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication, discusses a growing movement among television news outlets to delay live broadcasts of President Trump’s daily COVID-19 briefings to minimize falsehoods and politicizing. He offers journalists some suggestions about improving coverage of live events, including placing a greater focus on “being right” than “being first.”

Dean Lukasiewicz was Senior Vice President of Specials at NBC News and a longtime producer and executive producer of live programming at both NBC News and ABC News from 1989 to 2017.
