News Training

This July, News Training is being offered as a two-part workshop. Both sessions are mandatory to complete this training. Across these sessions, Generator’s Kennedy Pawluk and Oumar Salifou will give you hands-on experience in:

  • Basics of Interviewing
  • Basics of Editing in Hindenburg
  • Recording in Studio B
  • Post-production
  • Writing for radio

There is homework attached to these workshops. Between sessions, you’ll be expected to complete your first interview. By the end, you’ll have made a complete news story, and you’ll be able to present it on Generator, our new producer showcase! Please come prepared with ideas for a news story.
