Radio journalism is a form of journalism which is very exciting, as you can appreciate voice recordings and the use of airtime.

Listening to your voice in the air is a fascinating thing to do.

The style of news reporting for broadcasting, whether it is radio or TV, differs from that in print media because the emphasis on TIMELINESS changes.

Radio and broadcasting give priority to breaking news, so IMMEDIACY is valued more than other news values, compared with print media.

From my experience, radio broadcasting is a little different from print media.

Radio broadcasting emphasizes a conversational style combined with tight writing and clarity.

Radio broadcasting can often be based on current events, as they can serve as newscasts.

Print media and broadcast media were referred to as “now” media.

The importance of timeliness is a major factor in determining WHY an item should be broadcast.

The amount of time available or the lack thereof determines how an issue is reported or broadcasted.

The air time in broadcasting is valuable as it emphasizes more on the WHAT, the WHERE and the HOW than the WHY.

Broadcasting is more concerned with INFORMATION than with EXPLANATION.

Most stories can be told in between 20 and 30 seconds, but no longer than two minutes.

Broadcasting, unlike print media is unique. This is especially true when you consider the technology involved.

Radio broadcasts are chosen because a reporter recorded an audio report on the scene.

Visually appealing news is often selected for broadcast on television.

Radio broadcasting is unique in comparison to print media because it uses direct recordings of the words of the people who were there, or affected by the event.

Radio broadcasting relies on SOUND BITE. The SOUND BITE recordings are the voices of the people who were directly interviewed by the reporter, or those who witnessed the event.

A reporter can capture SOUNDBITE by speaking to people who visited or saw the location where an event took place using Skype, mobile phones, and telephone technology.

SOUND BITE can also involve government officials, local politicians, eyewitnesses and people who arrive at the scene.

The CONVERSATIONAL SLITE is a simple, informal style that radio reporters are encouraged to use 해외축구중계.

It is important to remember that you will be talking to the public, so it is important to tell them what happened.

What did you just see? Radio broadcasting uses simple sentences with verbs that are “transitive”.

While I was in the field, these were some of the details of radio broadcasting which I found interesting.
