Week 3 – News Story
Seeing is Believing

Traditional radio also provides us with the storytelling aspect where we may find ourselves sitting in the car hanging on to every word of a great news story. This week you will write a broadcast script for a television news story and for a radio news story. The television script and the radio script will both be designed for the delivery of a story that is 5 minutes in length.
Topic and Sources of Information: The issue that you choose to write about must be current and have some relevance for your local community city and/or state.
