Radio journalism is experiencing a renaissance. And by ‘radio’ journalism, we are talking about audio and sonic journalism, including podcasts, social media and other sources of digital discovery and delivery. Today, the circulation of America's daily newspaper and the cumulative audience of public radio are matched at 40 million people.
But that doesn’t even include the audience of audio storytelling podcasts such as Serial, Planet Money, 99 Percent Invisible, and Reply All!
In this class, students will gain basic journalism and radio skills by pitching, reporting, voicing, and editing different types of radio stories aired weekly on KALX 90.7 FM. By the end of the semester you’ll have at least two stories to add to your portfolio or even pitch to other news outlets.
We’ll also explore the world of public radio, professional podcasting, and hear from a group of insightful and well-regarded guest speakers. The skills acquired in this course – while wrapped around radio broadcasting and podcasting – are transferable to any medium which uses audio.
THIS COURSE IS ON MONDAYS 6:30-8PM!!
