I have TV news staffers from all over the country hitting my television news sweeps idea posts. We must be getting close to a ratings period!
For a few television news sweeps periods I was pumping out story ideas. Then I got bored of doing it. Maybe if I was getting a salary for it, the creative juices would start flowing again. Some story ideas were actually newsy, others way (way) over the top and most are pretty evergreen and should last a few years.
Depending on your manager, you should be covered if you have to show up with ideas in your pocket.
