Abstract

This paper proposes clues to understanding the "temporalities in broadcast journalism" and how they affect the process of television production. We understand temporalities as discontinuous flows of time, which can be experienced collectively and individually in the newsroom: from production and investigation to decision making by the editor with the news program on air. Thus, time functions as productive operator, and temporality as a value for the realization of broadcast journalism. We made a participant observation in the newsroom of TV Cabo Branco, Globo affiliate in João Pessoa and interviewed the journalists who make JPB 1st Edition.
