BDJ Students Take on Mobile Reporting Experiment

By Sara Bonadies (NCC News) SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Professor Randy Wenner’s radio newscast class has been experimenting with radio storytelling since August.

With the semester winding down, they were faced with a new challenge – taking to the field to compile a video story using their smartphones.

The students used the app FilmoraGo to compile interviews, voice tracks and stand-ups into a short video package.

The students were assigned to one of three topics: Syracuse Alum Jeff Glor anchoring the CBS Evening News, lessons learned from the Mumps outbreak on campus, as well as next year’s tuition hike.
