News Director Interview Questions
Question 1 of 30

What are your ethical practices?

How to Answer
A news director often makes the most difficult decisions on what stories to cover and how to cover them. The candidate must discuss their experience making these decisions and can show that they are level-headed and confident with what the ultimately decide. Some of these ethical decisions are whether or not to reveal sources to the public, or whether or not to show violent crimes on video or in pictures on television during peak news hour. The candidate must show that they understand the severity of their decision and can back up what they do.

Answer Example
"I believe in providing the public with the most honest and truthful accounts of stories. I rarely want to hold back any news or pictures from them, and they can choose to read or look depending on how they feel about the story. However, if any of the news compromises the future of a young person, I will assess the situation and do my best to protect underaged children from their names appearing to the public."
