Hear it here first! On Wednesday, January 17, 2018, listen to stories about self-driving cars, space planes, social circuses, and private rail travel when the students of JRN 450: Radio Documentaries will publicly present their final projects. This event, in 010 East Pyne at 4:30pm, is free and open to the public.
Taught by Ferris Professor of Journalism Joe Richman (NPR’s Radio Diaries), their course focused on audio storytelling and explored the sensibilities and skills needed for narratives to capture listeners’ imaginations. The students have done advanced writing, interviewing, sound-gathering, and multi-layered audio production to create broadcast-caliber radio documentaries, and their work will soon be pitched to public radio outlets, including NPR.
