How to do news script with a conversation to other anchors?

We have issued a short news. Where we define happening in our environment such as negotiation, traffic news, sports news and whatever. Now how can we make it?

Once you have the format down for telling the news you can then fit any kind of content, whether it be sports news, traffic news or whatever into that format along with a bit of casual conversation for your television anchors to follow.

In general, the script should open with one anchor "throwing" the lead story to the other by making a statement such as - ...and now Ken, our local news specialist, is going to talk a bit about last night's shooting."

The story should always be propelled forward with closing informative comments at the end such as "We will have more for you about this story on tonight's 11:00 news."

Another thing to realize too is that conversation between anchors is not always scripted. It is often up to the anchors to adlib their own observations about the news item as they go along. This sound more natural then scripting the small talk about the news for them.

Watch various news programs for introduction ideas. Otherwise, welcome the audience to the program at the beginning and thank them for tuning in at the end. It is also a good idea to ask the audience to "join us next time."
