You decide what is newsworthy, and what is not! Go behind the headlines and learn what makes the news when you produce your own news stories. You’ll learn to use the language of broadcast news to craft your own interviews and b-roll, and add sound effects, graphics and titles, while also gaining research and editing skills.
