Day & Time: Tue | 2:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Location: Online

Instructor: Joe Peyronnin

Prerequisites:  Journalistic Inquiry: The Written Word (JOUR-UA 101) & The Beat (JOUR-UA 201)

Students in this class will be involved in every aspect of producing a television newscast. The weekly shows will be broadcast live on the NYU cable system and streamed online. Each student will take on a different role, from anchoring, line producing, directing, to running audio, prompter or EP’ing.  There will be strong emphasis on script writing, story selection and placement, as well as execution in the control room. The class assignments include both editorial and operational functions. Our class will act as a living newsroom where there is a tight deadline to get the show on the air. There will also be reporting assignments outside of the Tuesday class. “NYU Tonight” airs at 6pm every Tuesday for 30 minutes.  We will reconvene as a group from 630 to 7p for post-game discussion.

Notes: Counts as an elective for the journalism major and both journalism minors.
