In the ever changing world of technology, Broadcast News Production practice keeps shifting the goal posts every single moment; what was hitherto frowned upon gains currency overnight or vice versa. Catching and keeping up with the pace therefore becomes a daunting task.
Broadcast News Production and Editing is a specialised unit that prepares the student on the art and craft of news content creation and presentation. By its very nature, News has a unique way of production that the primary, secondary and tertiary target audiences are conditioned to consume the content. Immediacy, accuracy and delivery style determines chances of the station and stories to be on or off air.
While upholding News production norms cultivated over the years, learners will be encouraged to adopt eccentric techniques to come up with their signature skills and techniques to give them an edge in the corporate world that they are preparing to join. Creativity and work discipline will be the yardsticks to measure competence at the end of the course.
