KJB336 Radio and Television Journalism 2

This unit aids you to produce radio and television news and current affairs programs of broadcast standard while strengthening the reporting skills developed in KJB235. It builds understanding of, and reflection on, the social role of the broadcast journalist and the medium's impact on the message. It is intended to give you a better understanding of the nature of radio and television news and current affairs in their various forms and related issues and to further develop your understanding of newsgathering and reporting principles. It includes the philosophy and formulation of radio and television news, anchor techniques, and radio and television news production using computers. Culturally safe practice is an essential element when working as a holistic and accountable professional with Indigenous Australians and their communities. This requires deconstruction of your own cultures, values, beliefs and attitudes and the impacts on becoming culturally safe in your discipline.
