Summary/Abstract: Who should know better than anyone else how people spend their Christmas in Bucovina? Who should show and tell us about a go on a telegondola in Piatra Neamt? What about the performances of the pupils in Craiova or the budget of the Politehnica football team in Timisoara? The only persons that ought to know all these things and events should be the reporters of the regional televisions in the respective area. These televisions respond to the needs that the national or local televisions cannot cover. That is, the desire to be known by a community whose events cannot be shown by the national television, but at the same time they can become subjects of a real regional debate. The review will mainly show aspects connected to a grid for the audience of a regional television, how to make a news program; it will also be about the ethical models of the reporters who sometimes transmit breaking news and the practical tendencies of these channels. It is true that for the time being, the regional televisions in Europe are influenced by the economic crisis. The work doesn't want to offer solutions or models that could be adapted to the present situation, but it tries to express opinions about the place that the regional televisions have on the audio-video market.
