The goal of the radio production training program is to create radio professionals who will produce audio segments not only for Grassroots DC, but also for other media outlets with a wider audience. Bearing that in mind, we do our best to train students in every aspect of production that will be useful to the freelance contributor, including audio recording, audio editing, writing for radio, etc. Beginning radio students are encouraged to complete the following courses:
- Media Literacy 101: Deconstructing the News Lead
- Writing for Radio: Headlines Exercise
- Media Literacy 102: Deconstructing the News Wrap
- Basic Audio Editing: Creating a News Wrap
A Word document of the above curriculum can also be downloaded here: Grassroots-DC-Radio-Production-Curriculum
Students who complete the above classes are encouraged to produce longer and more in-depth radio segments. The Intermediate Radio Production Curriculum should help with that process.
