How to Design a News Room


As the news industry evolves, more start-up news organizations will be setting up shop. It's important to choose a newsroom design that will best fit your product.

Things You'll Need

  • A news team
  • An office space
  • Set a goal for your newsroom's design. Most editors and publishers strive for excellent streamlined communication in their newsrooms. Others plan to combine print, broadcast and online products. This or any other goal for your newsroom will need to considered throughout the design process.

  • Evaluate your space. You may have an ideal design for your newsroom, but it must fit into the area you've identified for it. Double-check and, if your design doesn't conform with the space, you must find a new location or alter your newsroom design.

  • Identify your team. You'll need a place for everyone on your news staff. That includes reporters, photographers, page and Web designers, editors and anyone else with a daily seat at the table in your newsroom.

  • Identify your central players. Most newsrooms are built around a central desk so the people there are always in the mix and easily accessible. These people usually include copy and line editors as well as the page one and Web site designers.

  • Identify your needs. Your newsroom will require telephone, cable and Internet networks. Depending on the product, you might also need to broadcast from your newsroom. Include all of these essentials in the planning process.

  • Execute your design and experiment. Build your newsroom and, once it's complete, don't be afraid to make changes. Make sure your newsroom is operating at its full potential.
