1 News NZ

Wait… so is there no pre-recorded headlines?

At least have a “Heres what was making headlines on tonights 1 News.” Even if it was inserted, and have the up to date headlines on the side incase there was updated news

That’s because they restructured the digital news team.

Surely they have templates the reporters can use to upload their own stories? Can’t imagine it would take more than 10 mins out of their day.

They were using it as a largely text only platform why links in bio. Speaks to their lack of digital strategy over the last 15 years that this isn’t a priority.

Probably figured Instagram isn’t a big driver of traffic to the website or the effort involved to produce native content in a different format wasn’t worth it.

But surely there are content management systems they use that could distribute social content across multiple platforms as a bare minimum to keep some engagement?

An intern could run the account tbh.

But I think TVNZ is busy dealing with unions and lawyers to give a toss about an Instagram account.

Melissa Stokes giving another update at 4:55pm. Nothing very substantial just plays out the footage of the incident, quickly updates the situation and then plays the footage again and wraps up

Interesting they ran with “injured” rather than “shot” like most others.
