MC 360. Reporting and Producing TV News. 3 Hours.
In this course, students apply the reporting skills they’ve developed in MC 115 and MC 217 to report and produce news for television. Students work cooperatively with students in CT 339 and CT 325 classes to report, write, and produce television news packages and ultimately produce an entire newscast, including sports, features, and interviews. Major emphasis is on reporting skills, writing, package and newscast production, and performance. The cooperative dimension of the course helps students understand the critical importance of communicating with colleagues, photographers/editors, directors, and studio crew in creating and presenting television news. Prerequisite(s): MC 115 and MC 217.
