On-air positions for news include:
Anchors & co-anchors: Anchors are responsible for writing the day’s top headlines in broadcast style. The anchors then deliver these stories from the news desk on live television. They work with the TV2 news director and producer to complete other necessary tasks. There is one anchor and one co-anchor for every Flashcast and newscast.
Multimedia journalists (MMJ): Multimedia journalists are responsible for interviewing, filming, writing and editing stories for the newscast. They will then introduce the story live in the studio.
Segment anchors: The segment anchor position is similar to the MMJ and anchor positions. They are responsible for interviewing sources and writing stories for the newscast. Typically, the segment anchor is responsible for a few stories that all relate to one larger topic. They will then deliver the story live in the studio.
Weather anchors: The weather anchor creates graphics that correspond to the forecast. They then deliver it on live television.
