More angles means better coverage

It is important that media outlets continue ongoing coverage of big news stories.  While it is crucial to cover big news stories on the day that they break, it is equally important to continue providing coverage of the aftermath of breaking news throughout the week.  
Typhoon Hiyan has been a big news story that ATVN has been closely following for the last two weeks.  When the story initially broke, Team Monday was the first group to take a stab at covering new angles of the typhoon.  As lead producer,  I was able to develop several angles to the story that we were able to cover for the newscast.  I started our coverage by first showing video of and providing an update on the typhoon. Then I was able to include a full screen map that pinpointed the location of the storm.  In order to get a local angle on the story, we were able to interview several USC Filipino students to get their reaction on the typhoon.  Additionally, one of our reporters, Julia Deng, interviewed Team Rubicon, a disaster response organization, about what they were doing to help out people in the Philippines.  
ATVN was able to provide coverage of Typhoon Hiyan throughout the rest of the week by covering different angles of the typhoon aftermath.
