Learn Broadcasting Hands On at a Real Radio Station - Radio Connection Success Stories
In this lesson I learned the differences between a P.S.A, Paid Programming,and Infomercial which was the question I had and mr. Gonzalez answered it for me. I composed a PSA of my own and created it as if it was a segment on the radio and had background music. I also learned the things that I have to work on verbally which are the following: S,Ch,and Sh. I was told to studying certain speakers and to understand and imitate the clarity of their speech. I had a great time at the radio station and are scheduled for next week tuesday at 7:30pm.
I also learned about weather broadcasting and their different styles of delivery. I learned the abbreviations and how to read and understand weather jargon. A few vocal tips were given also and have been and are being put into practice. Everything is working out just fine and anxious to start the next lesson.
We covered the basics of conducting an interview along with the do’s and don’ts. I’ve constructed a five minute interview on sports and it came out pretty good. The only problem I had that I did correct was the constant use of “um”, but I took care of that with the editing and also made a note to self so now I’m more aware and on the look out. I’ve started on lesson 14 my own DJ show and I’m loving so far and Mr. Gonzalez told me to double up on the lessons so I’m doing lesson 14 and 15 as we speak and I will keep you to date with that.-- Nedal Brown, Waterbury, NY
