Producing University Television News Reports for a Network Affiliate.
Reppert, James E.
This paper discusses a class project in which a broadcast education professor's students at Southern Arkansas University produced campus news stories for the local NBC affiliate--the affiliate ran the stories once a week on their newscasts. The paper begins with a short explanation of course requirements for Advanced Electronic News Gathering and how news stories are selected and reported. The paper continues with an edited videotape consisting of news stories recently produced and aired, followed by scripts of productions. Some of the scripts reproduced in the paper contain news stories about homecoming, non-traditional students, residence hall life, the business school, the political affairs club, and agriculture students and cattle ranching. The paper notes that in the course special attention is paid to video editing by phrase or complete sentence; writing in a conversational style; logical sequencing of shots; making sound bites meaningful; ensuring that "stand-ups" further story progression; utilizing natural sound where appropriate; and shooting footage whose composition and movement do not call attention to themselves.
