Assignment Editor, Singapore News

An assignment editor manages and delegates the coverage of news items for broadcast — working with the News editor. He/she gathers leads on possible news stories. Because of his/her  involvement in providing the community with accurate and relevant news coverage, many assignment editors have established contacts with civic or political leaders, law enforcement, community organisations or other reliable sources of information. After discussing with the News editor on what will be covered, the assignment editor assigns coverage to reporters and other news team members, working quickly to ensure that they will be able to meet deadlines.

to the relevant on-location reporters.

grasp of political issues.
