We describe our analysis and modeling of the summarization process of Japa- nese broadcast news. We have studied the entire manual summarization proc- ess of the Japan Broadcasting Corpora- tion (NHK). The staff of NHK has been making manual summarizations of news text on a daily basis since De- cember 2000. We interviewed these professional abstractors and obtained a considerable amount of news summa- ries. We matched the summary with the original text, investigated the news text structure, and thereby analyzed the manual summarization process. We then developed a summarization model on which we intend to build a summa- rization system.
