Overview of class

This key Medill class has been updated to run remotely, yet it will maintain the core principles of producing a newscast for broadcast or the web. Just like the professionals have had to pivot during the pandemic, this course will use special software to allow students to create a virtual studio from home. The schedule has been altered to provide real-time, deadline experience to produce and anchor a newscast in one longer class session on Tuesday. You will use footage from the day\'s top stories to create a show from scratch. The second, shorter session on Thursday will focus on newscast analyses and live reporting. The course will continue to emphasize strong conversational writing and accurate, fair and ethical reporting.
