Hey everyone this week’s assigned blog topic is announcements. Now we have taken over the whole CKTV Morning announcements we are announcing now! I am announcing next week and I am nervous yet excited! I have even worked during our first week of announcements so I know what to do when I announce. I agree with Mr. M when he says we are some ways from “We got this!” because there are definitely things that could change to make it better. So here are a few things that we can maybe do to improve.
So the first thing that we can do is to maybe have the announcers at the library a little bit before 7:15 to have the scripts printed and ready to go earlier. Maybe if they have another announcement they can get it printed earlier and they can get in the room faster. So even if the control room is not ready they can read it through again. So, they are more familiar with the script so they can just flow through it during practices and when we go live.
The next thing that we can do to make it great is to always have someone else in the class to check your script to see if it’s okay. I feel like if someone else checks it they might have an idea of what to change. It could be like changing up a part of the script that could be more creative. Or there might be a mistake in the script or an announcement that they might have missed and without that you might have missed something and made a mistake.
The last thing that we could do is to have a practice together to make sure that we know how to pronounce certain words and if we are enthusiastic enough. When I watched the announcements some people looked like they were literally dead. With other people around they might have advice for you and it will feel more natural.
So that’s all for this week! Hope you have a great day.
