This course explores the storytelling process of radio news field reporting in several forms, including news radio style packages and longer-form National Public Radio-style pieces. Students use journalism tenets and professional audio equipment to gather information, write, and produce several news packages under deadline. The goal is to develop audio pieces ready for broadcast, podcast, and/or mobile media delivery. Produced pieces may be aired on the college radio station WCRX.
