    live the story

    With more journalists in more places than any other international news broadcaster, the BBC brings unrivalled depth and insight to news from around the world and, because our journalists live the story, our audience can live the story along with them.

    What does "live the story" mean? Is it a natural expression? Is "live" a verb and is pronounced as "liv"?

    Thanks!

    Jason

    Hello,

    I am not answering your question.

    I only wanted to suggest that you might want to consider these words:

    "With more journalists in more places .... our journalists live the story."

    Re: live the story

    The BBC prides itself in sending the most journalists to places around the world for them to get firsthand experience of the happenings (live the story) to report the news, so that it can be shared live with the audience (live the story with them) as and when they unfold.

    Re: live the story

    May I take 'live the story' to mean 'live in the place where the story happens'?

    No.

    'Live the story' means 'experience the story'.
