Broadcast news is a rich domain for information extraction, but one that presents new challenges for evaluation. In this paper we present an overview of the first evaluation of information extraction from broadcast news that was conducted as part of the DARPA-funded Hub 4 1998 workshop. We discuss the work that was required to design and administer the evaluation, describe some of the challenges that we encountered, and summarize the results of the evaluation.
