ThreeSixty students nestled into an editing space around the newsroom to write their first radio story about Juxtaposition Arts Wednesday at MPR News Radio Camp.
The students are working side-by-side with MPR News and American Public Media mentors to write their stories.
The mentors for 2019 Radio Camp include:
- Alex Baumhardt – APM Reports Associate Producer
- Molly Bloom – Brains On! Host
- Sam Choo – All Things Considered Senior Producer
- Riham Feshir – MPR News Reporter
- Curtis Gilbert – APM Reports Reporter
- Alisa Roth – MPR News Mental Health Correspondent
- Tom Scheck – APM Reports Reporter
- Bill Wareham – MPR News Editor
Students learned how to write for radio, sort through clips, decide a story structure, choose cuts and draft their stories all while on deadline.
First thing Thursday morning, students will record their reporter tracks.
17-year-old Safiya is interested in journalism and dreams of being a foreign correspondent. She’s particularly interested in the women’s movement in Afghanistan, which she thinks is under covered by the media. We’re thrilled she’s in this summer’s @mprnews Radio Camp. #mpr360 pic.twitter.com/0dau68wwwR
