2020 was one of the most shocking years in recent memory. Focusing exclusively on the television news business, the coronavirus pandemic forced executives, producers and talent—both in front of and behind the camera—to rethink how they produce television journalism in this age of social distancing and working from home. What made 2020 even more difficult for the business was these on-the-fly changes had to be made in the midst of a presidential election year.
We spoke with the network presidents and talent earlier this month about what they learned from 2020, and how their shows and networks might change in 2021.
Now, we’re asking you to predict what will happen across the industry in 2021.
We’ll reveal the 2020 TVNewser Challenge results later in the week, but first, we’re sharing the 2021 TVNewser Challenge!
Voting ends Jan. 8, 2021. Good luck!
