I’m a one person news department at a small NPR station on California’s Central Coast.
Our part time morning, and afternoon anchors do 14 daily newscasts, and i provide all of the local news content in the filed, and in studio, as well as producing a daily long form (5-6 minute) local news story or feature. When we have breaking news like brush fires, I’m our field reporter.
In my spare time (ha!) I write all of the local news content for our websote, kclu.org, which is usually 7-10 stories a day.
This entry has three stories:
1) A hard news story, in which I tried to use sound to make an average story sound special.
2) A spot news story, which was coverage of a major brush fire, in which I tried to use sound to bring the story home to listeners.
3) A feature story which I think speaks for itself….
