J275 Intro to Audio

Learn how to report and tell stories for the ear, with rich sounds, scenes, voices, and writing that pull listeners in and keep them listening. This class teaches the basics of audio journalism: how to choose, plan and report your story; do effective audio interviews; gather great sound and scenes; write for the ear; what audio equipment to use in different circumstances; how to edit and mix audio; and how to use audio effectively within any journalistic story.  Students taking this class with J200 can report the same story for both classes, providing they record in the field while reporting their J200 stories. Students will work toward placing their stories on J-School podcasts, and possibly on local public radio stations. Course Material fee is $40. The fee is charged to the student account the fifth week of classes. Fees are used to maintain equipment used in the course.
