In session 1 we learned how a radio station should run and what happens inside the station. We also learned about different radio program formats. During the session we learned how to operate the sound forge audio editing software program to alter a preset sound.
In session 2 we learned about advertising, how long its been used, how to use it, and how it started. The advertising we were mainly focusing on were commercials like a product commercial or event commercial or even commercials for resturants. During this session we also experimented with another audio piece but this time it was a commercial, which is a way of advertising. After we altered this piece we were given the chance to make our own commercial with audio.
In session 3 we created three news stories with the worksheets provided within the module. We also created a commentary on the same worksheet for this module. Lastly we created a introduction for our whole newscast.
In session 4 we recorded the commentary, the introduction and the three news stories. During this we took turns recording the pieces so one partner didn't do all of the work. During this session we used the sound forge software to record and edit the audio.
In session 5 we created lead-ins and lead-outs for our news broadcast. To do this we used the Music Studio software. A lead-in and lead-out is when you start a news cast and it plays a little piece of music but normally it has no words.
In session 6 we continued with the lead-ins and lead-outs on our broadcast. We also created other music necessary for the broadcast. At the end of the session we completed the lead-ins and lead-outs.
In session 7 we grabbed all of the audio pieces for the broadcast and made our final product. We then burned our product onto a CD. Our final product was a well conducted broadcast with lead-ins/outs, commentary,intros,etc.
Audio Broadcasting Career
One career that is relevant to this module is an audio broadcaster. An audio broadcaster pretty much sends out important news, music, and what people want to hear. Audio broadcasters have to do what we did in this module. They have to write up a script on what to do and say during the broadcast. They also have to use certain audio pieces in the broadcast. They use more complicated machinery than what we used to make the sounds they produce even better.
