Editorial Policy. How we do it.
The reality is that our television clients, not the staff of Capitol News Service make the final decision of which stories will be covered each day after being provided a list of story ideas generated by our experienced professionals. Much like newspaper editors, our clients decide which stories best fits the needs of their particular market.
Sometimes, the television stations accept story ideas generated by our collaborative efforts in Tallahassee. Just as often, they redirect us for something they deem more immediate.
Capitol News Service also has an editorial decision making process. Our aim is always to cover the stories that have the most impact on people by asking the question: Who cares and so what? Our Editorial Board is made up of David Palmer, Andy Bundschuh, and Mike Vasilinda. Each have a vote. Two votes are required to proceed with a story when it comes to content, style, or story selection.
