LIVE News Production with Cuez: Interview with Ticker News

In the world of news production, technological advancements play a pivotal role, also shaping the way news is delivered. With changing viewing patterns, news broadcasters must adapt quickly to keep their viewers engaged. Ticker News, a 24/7 news channel stretching from Melbourne to New York, stays at the forefront of advanced technologies. A part of their journey to success in news production has been facilitated by their adoption of Cuez — a cloud-based script and rundown platform. In this interview, Ahron Young, the Founder of Ticker News, talks about their achievements and how Cuez by TinkerList became an integral part of Ticker News, transforming challenges into opportunities.

Challenges of News Production

Producing daily news is not only art but also a technically challenging endeavor.

  • “We make a lot of content each day […] If you think about the number of guests that we have, it’s a huge number and we have had up to 70 on some days,” shares Ahron.

Such continuous news production required a reliable system that would allow Ticker News to deliver content and interview people non-stop, without having to reset the studio each time. That’s where Cuez by TinkerList came into their ecosystem, offering instant script and rundown synchronization.

Cuez by TinkerList: A Game-Changer

The adoption of Cuez by TinkerList marked a new chapter for Ticker News. The tool did not just simplify the process; it transformed it completely.

In addition to synchronized script and rundown, Cuez by TinkerList brought about significant changes in operational efficiency. With Automator — a unique tool that allows connecting studio equipment and controlling it by simply pressing a button — the team managed to take their production to the next level of efficiency and minimize operational complexities.

  • “It took a production of three or four people down to one or two, which was a huge saving for us,” reveals Ahron.
