This course will provide a real-life setting for day-of-air reporting. The goal is to give students the skills and confidence needed to work in a local newsroom for broadcast or Internet. Lectures, class discussions, exercises and assignments will build on the editorial and technical skills learned in previous courses. Students will learn more efficient time management techniques at locations and in the editing suite. They will also learn a variety of interview techniques that will elicit stronger sound bites. They will become more adept at instant decision making in a breaking news setting as well as shooting more informative/relevant “B” roll and using it in storytelling.
