Q. What’s the purpose of news reporters standing while giving the news? They don’t appear to be comfortable. Give them their desk back for the entire newscast.
A.WECT-TV’s newscasters often stand while delivering the local news. According to Scott Saxton, news director for WECT & Fox Wilmington, it’s a matter of logistics.
“Our anchors move around a lot and need to be mobile,” he said.
Scott Pickey, news director for WWAY NewsChannel 3, said that station’s anchors are seated for most of the newscast.
