Becoming a sport broadcaster
Product and Pictorial Log 1 By: Keshawn Smith
Becoming a Journalist/Broadcaster
Tuesday, February 21 2:00 pm – 7:00 pm | 5 hours
This evening, I spoke with my project facilitator about when could we meet and finally we came to an agreement to meet on Thursday February 23. During our talk on the phone, we discuss some plans that we would be doing on that day as she came up with some cool ideas. First, she wanted us to go check out this truck that had as much equipment in it as the broadcast room then she wanted us to go into the student media room where young journalist where researching stories for the anchors. Finally, she wanted me to look at what goes on in the control room where the producers and other workers control the broadcast by the sounds, movement, and other things that might signal a problem. We continued to discuss our plans on the phone for another 30 minutes or so as we thought it would be best if I would stay for another day or two to learn more about journalism/broadcasting. As we finished discussing our plans, I decided to get off the phone as I felt like she could’ve gone for another hour or two as it seemed like she was more excited than me. When I got off the phone with my project facilitator, I began sorting out our plans for those 2 days of the things we were going to do and got a little help from my mother in organizing my plans. After finishing my plans I became more excited in learning about broadcasting as I couldn’t wait for those days to begin.
Talking to my project facilitator about our first meeting plans. I couldn’t be more excited to learn about journalism/broadcasting.
My Plans I wrote for the 2 days that I’m going to learn about broadcasting. I can’t wait to learn more about journalists and broadcasters on Thursday.
I am nervous about learning how to be a broadcaster because I know I will need to face my fears of communicating with someone in front a of television with thousands of people watching. However, I have a dream of becoming a sport broadcaster and I’m determine to succeed my goal in becoming who I want to be so I’m ready to overcome my fears and pursue my dreams. My uncle is a student at Middle Tennessee who is also pursuing sport broadcasting and he has helped me with some tips that could make me more comfortable in discussing a topic in front of cameras.
Also, I feel more excited rather than nervous now that my uncle who has experience in broadcasting gave me some tips of the challenges I was facing, which gives me even more confidence.
After writing my plans, I realized how difficult it must be for broadcasters as if all these ideas that my project facilitator gave me were some of the things they do on a regular day basis day and night it must be hard for them as they don’t get much rest at all. I am glad my PF have given her time in teaching me about broadcasting as I’m thankful that she took her time to help me with this senior project. Otherwise, I wouldn’t know anything about broadcasting.
