Students will explore the reporter's role in factual production across broadcast and electronic media. Topics covered will include research for audio visual media, writing for radio, television and online formats, interviewing techniques, script editing, developing talkback topics for radio, and principles of presenting for radio and television. As part of the process, students will be expected to undertake story design and conception, research, script editing, review and analysis.
