9/11 Generation Workshop Starts

Monday, May 02, 2011 - 03:38 PM

Radio Rookies started our workshop on Saturday for young people with stories tell and to report about the impact of September 11th in their lives.  We spent much of the day getting refreshers on how to use the equipment, learning about microphone placement, and going over interview techniques.  After a day focusing on the lighter side of reporting (interviews about first crushes and collecting the sounds of Soho), everyone shared a little about what brought them to participate in the workshop.  Even though it was two days before the news broke about Osama bin Laden's death, the dreadful legacy of September 11th was still very fresh for everyone in the room.  Coming soon: an introduction to the new Rookies.
