Hey everyone! This weeks blog topic is the toughest challenge for me in media so far this year. I think that radios have been very difficult for me this year because we have to do a lot more radios than in previous years, schools don't always call or email us back when we call for information and I have difficult radio dates this year.
Since our class is smaller this year we have to do more radios. We have to do radios about two times each quarter and once you finish a set of radios, you start up a new set two weeks later. So this doesn't give you much of a break in between because you start two weeks in advanced of your air date.
Another reason why I feel that radios have been the toughest challenge this year is because when we call schools to gather information for our radios they usually transfer us to their school's activity coordinator. Then we usually have to leave a message with an email or phone number because they don't answer the phone. Although many schools don't call or email us back. And their websites aren't always updated or they don't have enough information.
Finally, I feel that radios have been the toughest challenge so far because I have some of the more difficult dates this year. My current set of radios air over fall break which means there are less announcements because we don't have school that week which means we have to fill up the time. I also have to announce over winter break as well which means our radios will probably be short too. This also means our radios are due the week our projects are due because it's the week before break.
As you can see, the toughest challenge to me, so far this year is the Inside Scoops because we have to do more Inside Scoops, school's don't always provide us with information, and I have tough dates to announce. Thanks for reading! Bye!
