The study examines the performance of TVOne Journalists Makassar Bureau in the case of floods in Makassar City in January 2019. Through the live report program, this research wants to see the process of flood coverage and the obstacles they face when flood coverage. This research also
wants to see the concept of disaster journalism implemented by TVOne biro Makassar journalists. This research uses descriptive qualitative research. The application of disaster journalism goes according to ethical standards and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) set by TVOne Makassar Makassar in cases of flood coverage. When covering floods, all crews, including journalists, reporters, program directors, and program producers worked in teams to carry out flood coverage in several districts in South Sulawesi, starting from installing SNG (Satellite News Gathering), installing cameras, and
collecting information or disaster data. Constraints occur when the live report reporting process takes place in this South Sulawesi flood disaster, the access road to the location of flood coverage and landslides was cut off and the network at that time experienced, while the location of the coverage was
on a hill located in Jeneponto. As a result, the tvOne crew had to go back and forth from the coverage location several times to SNG, to send the results of the landslide coverage within the specified time period quickly, in order to catch up to the program deadline.
