So Basically, the flow of the news room is that reporters find stories to write about, and photographers will take photos to go along with the story, graphic designers will make graphs, charts, etc. wherever needed also. The editorial board will also form the obituaries by looking through their mails/emails from the people. The editor will then make sure the story is correct and unbiased and copy editors will add headlines, captions, and correct grammar. Page designers will then put the story, photos, designs and obituaries onto the pages of the newspaper then, and mass produce newspapers.
This can be compared to the making of a song. Songwriters would come up with the tune of the song (reporters), and then the singer/other writers would create lyrics to go along with the song (photographers/graphics designers). Vocalists and the recorders would then give them tips on how to make the song better, like higher pitch or lower pitch, more dynamics, etc (editors/page designers). The record company would be like the news station then, and the audience would form the obituary group.
