The workload varies depending on the days news, but expect to be busy writing for different newscasts. You will make a lot of calls to follow up on developing stories, tips, etc. I called to get oil prices a lot. People walk in seeking help and you may be tasked with taking their information. You may go out with a reporter. You may also act as a secret shopper, client, etc...for some basic story research. You will sit in on newsroom meetings.
