Hey everyone! This week’s blog topic is the top three most important things that we learned in media this year. Since this is my first year I have learned a lot since I first started at the beginning of the year. So here is the most important things that I have learned in CKTV.
The first thing that I have learned is how to properly do a news story. Since our second quarter project is a news story I have not only learned from that I have also learned from competing and practicing with the spot feature team. I learned how to find a story, create a script, and how to edit it. I also learned how to get a story faster because of the STN spot feature practices. I really love doing news story now because I do them so much.
The next thing that I have learned this year is how to make an inside scoop script and how to edit one. Our inside scoops are on the air on FM97 and we inform everyone on what happens at the Kauai schools on the week we have. I have learned to always check for more information even when I have finished my scripts. Also, recording and editing a radio is crucial to making a good inside scoop.
The last very important thing that I learned is how to make a PSA. For our third quarter project we did a PSA. I learned the basics of making a PSA like having a strong message or the shots have to have meaning. It is also really hard to come up with a message because you have to think if you can relate to this topic or if you have seen someone struggle with it. So you have to have first hand experience to make sure you hit everything on the dot.
It has been a very eventful first year of CKTV for me. I have learned so much and I can’t wait to learn more and more. So that’s all for this week! Have a great day.
