This advanced workshop focuses on creating and packaging news, interviews and short features for broadcast and online. Students work as a production team: as producers, reporters and hosts on Audiofiles, an audio news magazine that is recorded live-to-tape and broadcast on local public radio stations and published online. Students gain experience reporting, booking guests, lining up a show and hosting and recording live. They develop specialized skills and professional clips applicable to future work on local and national radio news magazines (Morning Edition,The Takeaway, Latino USA…) and in the rapidly expanding field of news and current affairs podcasts (The Daily, Today Explained, Planet Money…).
