Course Number: JRNL 402
This course builds on the skills that have been developed in Broadcast Writing and Radio News and Voice Training. It concentrates on writing tight, clean radio copy, as well as sharpening line-up techniques and improving organizational and interpersonal skills for the newsroom. Students write, produce and read five-minute news packages in a newsroom laboratory setting with a goal of reading newscasts live on the campus radio station as their classroom work. Students learn to work in a broadcast newsroom setting, working in teams to create newscasts under tight deadline pressures. In addition, students will critique newscasts for style, writing, line up and presentation. Students will also produce a radio news feature to be aired on Radio Humber 96.9FM. The goal of the course is to polish skills and techniques to prepare students for JRNL 520, and to create awareness of the importance of teamwork in a newsroom.
