Trapeze- Nat Sound

April 30, 2010

Last week I went to a flying trapeze in Rockville Centre to do a Nat Sound story. The story came out great! All the interviews were used to tell the story and there were no VOs or Stand-ups. It was enjoyable to do a story like that because I’m really passionate about the trapeze. Hope you all get a chance to check it out!

DA on Autism

April 30, 2010

Yesterday I covered a very interesting story. Last month police officers in LA mistakenly shot and killed an autistic man. The officers say the man was charging rapidly at them and thought he was armed–however, the man was unarmed. ¬†Yesterday the Nassau County District Attorney met with members of the autism community to promote further educating officials and first responders on the signs and characteristics of autism. To learn more watch Ch. 18 cablevision at 7pm.

News is constantly happening and one of the greatest challenges for reporters is trying to keep up with the flow of information. Professional news gatherers usually have just a few hours to figure out an angle for their story, shoot the interviews, write the script and produce the actual piece for the broadcast. Ask almost any news professional, and they will tell you learning how to manage one’s time effectively in order to make deadline does not “happen overnight.” Being a student intern at LI News Tonight has helped me “get up to speed” and reduce the amount of time it takes me to produce a story. When I first started at LI News Tonight last year it took me almost 8 hours to produce a ninety second news package and last week I completed my story (NYIT Solar Water http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3uL34MdauE)¬† in 4 hours. The new challenge is to polish the details of my packages without slowing down the pace. We’ll see….
