As we dig into our audio feature assignment, I’d like to direct your attention to some great examples of radio journalism.
First up will be a couple of different pieces featuring Kelly McEvers, a correspondant for National Public Radio (NPR). She’s become renowned for her reporting from the Middle East in recent years.
In the other story from Transom.org, The War Will Be Streamed, Kelly writes about how she has used social networking tools to make connections that helped her to cover some of the recent Arab uprisings.
Please try to listen to her story The Pirate from HowSound piece before our class on Wednesday so we can discuss it.
