Hey guys! This weeks topic is about the morning announcements that we have taken over completely for the rest of the year. Mr. M wants us to write about 3 things that we can do to make the announcements the best they can be. To make announcements great, we can have our scripts checked and printed at least a day before they are needed, show up on time, and as much as possible especially on game days. These are just a few things we can do, and there are many more.
One thing that we can do to make the announcements the best they can be is to have both scripts checked with Mr. M before the day of the broadcast. If we do this it will minimize the mistakes in the scripts which makes the announcements better too. Also, have the scripts printed at least the day before the broadcast and laid out in the rooms and put in the teleprompters. We should do this because if we happen to come late (which we shouldn’t) the scripts will be there and they can make titles and you aren’t stressing out because you weren’t prepared.
Another thing that will really make announcements better is if everyone shows up on time. Not just the announcers but the rest of the crew too. This means everyone is in by 7:15 am or earlier. With everyone in on time we will get in more practices which will make the actual announcements a lot better. It also gives the titler time to make the titles with enough time to practice too. Then the announcements should run a lot smoother and it won't look like we were unprepared.
Finally, we should all be practicing as much times as we possibly can because then the announcers will know what they have to say. Also, the behind the scenes people also need to know when to do certain things. For example the technical director needs to know when to switch, and the people manning the cameras need to know when to pull the paper. Everyone needs to practice to make the broadcast to look nice, especially on game days. When we have kahoot games on Fridays, everyone needs to practice because we are adding a lot more to the broadcast than usual.
Of course there are many more things we can do to improve announcements or to make them look the best, but these are just a few very important ones, in my opinion. We should always print out our scripts the day before the broadcast and come on time if you are working the morning announcements. Everyday we should be practicing as much as we can too. Anyways thanks for reading!
