Product and Pictorial Log 2 By: Keshawn Smith
Becoming a journalist/broadcaster
Thursday, February 23 10:00 am – 3:00 pm | 5 hours
This morning I met with my project facilitator at Middle Tennessee as we started our day by going around the Innovation Media room where you have young journalist watching news and researching stories. After seeing the media room, we decided to go into the control room where the producers and other journalists were making sure that their story was going as plan as they are the one’s who come up with the stories and then give their stories to the anchors for the anchors to practice on until their broadcast becomes live. When we finished up in the control room we went to the green room where they can change the screen into anything they want it to be although it is use mostly for the weather. I learned that the anchors who does the weather broadcast actually take a lot of time in practicing where that place will be on the screen because in reality the anchor can’t really see the map that is shown on television because the screen is green, so the anchors have to know what place is where. I also learned that in broadcasting you have a lot of people involved as they work very hard to make sure ever thing is going right and that there isn’t anything left out. Learning all these things I can’t wait for tomorrow as it will be my first time on camera for broadcasting
Meeting my project facilitator in person for the first time. We are entering the Innovation media room where journalist research stories.
Taking a look of what goes on in the control room. Learning that the people on the top row right are the producers.
Going into the green room for the first time ever. This is where they can change the background of the screen to anything they wanted it to be making it look real. Also got a chance to see some of the teleporters.
First I was very excited to get started for our first meet, but going through all the things that broadcaster do everyday I became very nervous because I felt that the amount of work they do everyday I probably wouldn’t be capable of doing it. However, I loved how everyone was involved as they helped each other out to complete their work, so I became more comfortable knowing that in this career field people are constantly working together so that everyone can succeed. Learning about what broadcasters do on a regular day basis was a surprised to me as I didn’t know how much work was required, but having people around helping each other out was a big plus for me and that’s why I’m very excited to get started with my career.
Also, I feel more excited because having the opportunity to be able to go through the process of learning about broadcasting has given me a step forward going into college.
After going through all the learning process, I am now ready to take another step forward as in the next log I will be actually broadcasting myself. I realized that in broadcasting there isn’t just one person doing all the work as you have a lot of people involved in completing it. I’m truly thankful for my PF in using her time to show me around of what broadcaster do everyday and I wouldn’t know all these important details that I will definitely need to know for me to be able to do this career field without her help.
