Advancing the Story Blog

This week I read a story from the “Advancing the Story” blog on Feedly. One headline that popped out to me was “Whatever Happened to Audio?”. This post went on to talk about how important it should be to teach students more about audio in the classroom. It emphasizes the need for journalism students to be well versed in all forms of multimedia.

I believe this post is very important because, being in the radio business, audio is stressed a lot at my job. I’ve always been more of an audio person rather than a visual one, so I believe learning how to create quality audio production is of the utmost importance.

Like I said, I wish to go into the radio business as my career, so the fact that studies are showing a lack of audio knowledge is extremely concerning to me. Here at the radio station on campus, we are encouraged to have extensive audio production experience, and we take pride in our knowledge of it.
