Live News and Election Coverage

HON 498 - Professor JC Barone

This course is a challenging, comprehensive, hands-on news production class. We prepare and create original pre-recorded, edited news packages and live news content. Production includes working in the field, on location, and in a TV studio. Strict adherence to broadcasting deadlines must be met, attendance is mandatory, team work is necessary, and individual responsibility is a must. Lectures provide concepts and theories about news production work, industry practices and techniques, interviewing, and information regarding civics, government, and politics. Production work beyond class time is expected. Live News & Election Coverage may be used by Media Arts Production students as a major elective and non-majors as a free elective. Majors may repeat the course as a free elective.
