News Comment #8

October 12, 2017

Since we are currently going over broadcast reporting I decided to listen to a bit of news on NPR’s morning edition via KTIV. I also found and linked the  NPR story below.

The broadcast story was about President Donald Trump signing an executive order today that allows groups ( trade groups etc)  of people to buy health coverage.

The reporters used short and concise statements while broadcasting. The ‘flow’ of the story seemed faster than print articles that you could read via the New York Times etc. Quotes were sometimes actually snippets and commentary from the reporters explained, and move the story along.

    You should listen to NPR every day (though at KWIT and not KTIV.) You might notice that at 10+ minutes, NPR reporters have the luxury of doing long pieces.
    This reads more like the transcript of a discussion than a news story. (The story won’t play at the moment, for some reason.)
