In session 1, I learned the basics about radio stations and how they operate. I then was introduced to a variety of radio program formats. After that, I learned how to use a digital audio editing software program. I also learned what it was like working in a radio station - the conditions, requirements and such.
In session 2, I learned the role that advertising and commercialism plays in radio - including historic ways of radio and advertisment. After that, I used a digital audio-editing software to record and manipulate a commercial that was already scripted. Then, after seeing what it was like to use this software and get used ot it, I recorded my own advertisement and edited it.
In session 3, I wrote - in total - 3 different news stories. In addition to this, I wrote a commentary and an introduction to my news cast. After drafting and writing all of these stories, I learned about the opportunities that radio professionals have.
In session 4, I recorded an introduction to my newscast. In addition to that, I recorded three other scripted news stories and advertisements. After that, I recorded a scripted commentary.
In session 5, I created music lead-ins and lead-outs for my commentary and news broadcast. A lead-in is most often times a musical introduction, and it signals to the crowd that a new segment is about to begin. A lead-out is similar to a lead-in, but it signals the end of a program.
In session 6, I completed the lead-ins and lead-outs from session 5. In addition to that, I created more musical files for my broadcast.
In session 7, I assembled the media files I created in earlier sessions into one final broadcast file. After that, I burned that file into a CD.
