Week 1:

This week was more of a refresher for me as we went over phrases and words related to Radio News and features for Radio news, such as packages and two-ways.


Week 2:

We were told to listen to Radio five live and TalkSport to give ourselves an idea into what Talk Radio is about. Listening to both of them i found i did enjoy Five Live more than TalkSport as i felt i could relate to the topics on that station where as TalkSport was very football heavy which didn’t interest me at all. However i did find it interesting how the presenters switched from in studio chat to pre recorded and live guests on the phone and as outside broadcaster.


Week 3:

This week we were put into our groups for the Talk Radio show we are to produce for our assignment. Once put in groups we had a task to create a news story using the different types of way to create a news bulletin. So as a group we came together and chose what story we would each report on and in what way. This was a good way to begin to mingle as a team and get to know what each other prefers. We briefly discussed roles for the assessment but nothing has been decided as of yet as we will see who prefers to do what and share the roles fairly.
