WATCH THE LECTURE
Hi guys, I come bearing a message from Andy Richards, newseditor at KMTV. He's going to be interviewing second year students to do intern shifts during Easter break, summer and into 3rd year. If you speak to some of the current interns (Jackie Gordon, Sarah Boast, Lauren Meecha, Ali Iveson, Abie Morris and Danny Rust) they will tell you what an incredible opportunity this is.
To apply YOU MUST HAVE PASSED your NCTJ Essential Public Affairs exam and Essential Media Law. If you've done that, great!
Hey guys, I'll be doing a session from 3-7pm in the main newsroom on March 7th for anybody who wants extra practice before the NCTJ TV and radio exams next week. The idea is to do an exam together, talk about what we've done differently, practice in the radio newsroom if you want, etc. If you cannot attend remember that you can always do a practice exam on your own and email it to Richard. No excuses not to practice guys!!
If you have absolutely no clue what's happening during the 60 second bulletins, or you kinda do but still want some practice, fear not! I will be running a full practice session from 2-6pm on Wednesday the 9th of March.I will show examples from previous years, get you to cut your own and practice in the studio. Remember that you have to read your own script and navigate autocue drama and stuff. If you want more practice, come see me, but trust my experience with previous years: if you don't practice it won't go as smoothly as you think it will.
