Instructor: Craig Scully-Clemmons
Description: Young people are huge consumers of media, but high schools students rarely have the chance to be producers of media in the public forum. YouthSpin, our weekly radio program on KOOP Radio (91.7FM) provides the platform for students to have a voice on the issues most important to them including current events and cultural issues, and of course spinning lots of music! This course will enable students to become radio producers. We will work on journalism, commentary writing, interview skills, voicing for radio, audio editing and production, and other radio basics. Perks include access to press passes at events, your own radio show, interview opportunities, and a chance to share the music you love. In addition to the classroom portion of this course, students will air the show on Fridays, 6-7pm at the KOOP Radio studio at 3823 Airport Blvd. So what do you have to say about the issues of our time? What will your playlist be?
