Abstract

This study is dedicated to uncovering how idea development is encouraged or
inhibited at morning meetings in the newsroom. Morning meetings or news
conferences constitute a daily event in the work process in media organisations.
Every day, the journalists present their ideas to editors and colleagues at these
meetings.
Ideas are the fuel of the machinery of the media organisation: Without ideas, no
stories, without stories, no media, as Becker and Vlad state: “Story ideation will
almost certainly remain the key process in news production” (2009). In this light
the meeting is an interesting interactional setting to study, as it is part of the
process through which ideas are accepted, rejected, modified or even neglected
(Gravengaard and Rimestad 2012) in the newsroom.
