This unit addresses broadcast media from a production-based perspective and advances practical preparation for working professionally in news media. It provides concepts and skills to plan reports; conduct interviews and carry out other gathering functions; and write, present, and edit material for broadcast on radio and television.

You will gather, script and produce a number of news items for radio and television bulletins for broadcasting through community sector outlets. Strong emphasis is placed on current affairs knowledge. The unit contributes to understanding of the mass media and to professional preparation for work in the news media. The unit provides first practice in broadcasting as part of the Journalism strand from Newswriting through to the next in the series, Radio and Television Journalism 2.
