RTV 3373 Backpack Journalism
As the journalism landscape evolves, the
practice of “one-man-bands”-individual reporters/photogs, who shoot and edit
their work, becomes more common. News outlets are also employing the services
of a more mobile journalist, who can deliver news product in multiple formats; these
contributors are called: VJs, Multimedia Journalists, Backpack Journalists, or Mobile
Journalists. This course will cover the history, and the rise of this new breed,
and it will require you to evolve into this new type of journalist through
weekly, and sometimes daily reporting on deadline.
