Reporters’ Attitude is Essential for Their Survival

Media today is all about timeliness. Reporters are required to cover breaking news instantly after it happens. However, former anchor of TVB news Ivan Yau Man-wah, sees reporters’ attitude the most important element of news reporting.

When breaking news happens, reporters are the first to reach the accident scene. ‘When there was a fire at Garley Building, I saw the dead bodies hanging on the window,’ said Yau. ‘But I knew I had to be calm and to perform professionally.’ He thinks that reporters should be able to control their own emotions, so as to provide accurate and objective information to the audience. ‘If a reporter cries in front of the camera, the audience would become skeptical about the report’s objectiveness,’ added Yau.

Meanwhile, with advanced information transmission technology, such as wifi and satellite, reporters can cover breaking news instantly, which creates competition and pressure among the reporters. Yau feels that reporters should report what they think is right, despite the fact that they are under time pressure. ‘Reporters should stand on their values,’ said Yau. ‘If you can analyze the news in a reasonable way, even the government would listen to you.’ He sees that reporters should hold on to what they think are right, as they are influential to their audience. More importantly, reporters should use media as a platform to express public opinion.

He believes that if a reporter can be patient, be able to control their emotions, and be persistent towards his own values, he would not be far from becoming a successful reporter.--095137 2012年3月6日 (二) 18:18 (UTC)
