COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This is a practical course designed to enable students to become proficient in preparing a publishable news story under deadline. The course examines and sharpens the earlier knowledge of the students in the course of writing for the Mass Media. Here topics like definition of news as well as the inverted pyramid and other non-conventional structures of news writing will be taught; types of lead, sources of news and attribution in news writing are also covered. Similarly, the course expects students to put into practice the skills learned in producing news from their environment which will form part of their continuous assessment. The radio station essentially becomes the tool where the finished product of news written by students is aired.
