MCA 282 - Radio Journalism in the Community

For all the changes in 21st century communications-across the spectrum of the Web, social and streaming media, and endless blogs and podcasts-radio, the oldest form of broadcasting, still has a powerful presence, a unique delivery, and a real impact on listeners.

This course will focus on four major areas: Providing an in-depth introduction to reporting, journalistic writing, and radio history; mastering the stylistic and technical requirements-and the intensive practice-of radio reporting, editing, producing, and broadcasting; learning about up close and reporting on the surrounding Worcester community; working with college and professional radio stations and interacting with professional radio reporters, producers, and anchors, as well as getting familiar with Worcester-based journalism from reporters and editors of the Worcester Telegram and Gazette.


Prerequisites: CSAC 101 (or COMM 101)
