I’ve been so bogged down with finals that I never got a chance to write a blog post about our most recent class with Sarah McCammon. The particular entries that she had sent us to examine were very enlightening examples to see how journalism for the radio differs from just regular print reporting, but also really showed off just how similar the two really are.
I really enjoyed her talk on her ports authority topic. I thought that it was interesting that she chose to interview these sort of “entry level employees” or rather, the backbone of the port industry in Savannah, instead of attempting to meet with more of the higher-up executives. I felt like that provided a really intriguing viewpoint into the lives of who the port expansion would really affect.
