Digital Media Training for Radio
One of the day-long training opportunities being offered at this year's PRNDI Conference is a full day of Digital Media training.
In the morning, join Lam Thuy Vo for “A Video Crash Course for Radio Reporters” - Producing good video stories is hard and the number of things to keep in mind while shooting and reporting a video story can be overwhelming. This crash course will give reporters a structured way to go about your video reporting, introduce them to the 5-shot video reporting method and give them practical checklists for being out in the field.
In the afternoon, join us for “Integrating the web into your newsroom.” - Training for News Directors, reporters, and editors who are transitioning into multi-media content and trying to manage it all! It's aimed at stations that want to do more with their websites, beyond just using it as an archive. KPLU News Director Erin Hennessey and KPLU Online Managing Editor Jake Ellison will draw from day-to-day experiences of what our reporters do to make stories have high impact for the air and the web. We will discuss the need for different treatments, deadlines and discuss different user and listener habits. Since this is an afternoon training session, we'll be sure to keep it lively and get everyone involved in role playing and robust discussions. (Participants will also be contacted before the training session to see what questions they would like to tackle.)
The cost of the day-long training session is $150. To join us for this excellent training opportunity, you'll need to get a confirmation number by emailing Christine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
