IN THE NEWSROOM - FROM GLOBAL radio SHOWS TO LOCAL NBC- AFFILIATE STATIONS, THE MISSOURI METHOD OFFERS IT ALL

As a Convergence Journalism major at the University of Missouri, I had the opportunity to work several positions in several fully functioning local newsrooms in Columbia. During my first semester of my senior year and as part of my Convergence Producing course, I spent the first half of the semester producing for Global Journalist and the second half producing at KOMU 8.

Let's talk about Global Journalist:

Global Journalist is a radio and television program that broadcasts on KBIA-FM, Columbia's National Public Radio affiliate. The Mission of Global Journalist is to report on under-covered international news stories happening in under-covered parts of the world.

What was my role?:

As an assistant producer, I helped produce two 30-minute shows that aired on the radio and multiple social media platforms such as Facebook Live. The production process included extensively researching topics, booking international, knowledgable guests and creating production documents to keep our show's host informed and up-to-date.

Below are two shows I helped produce over an eight-week period.  

Let's talk about KOMU 8:

As part of my convergence curriculum, I was also able to learn about producing at KOMU 8, Columbia's NBC affiliate station.

 

What was my role?:

Here, I helped produce the Monday and Wednesday 5:00 p.m. newscasts. As an assistant producer, I helped organize the shows, write scripts for the anchors and communicate with reporters to ensure a smooth and clean show. I learned how to navigate iNews and now have a better sense of writing for the ear.
