Billy Weeks, director of graphics and photography at the Chattanooga Times Free Press, joined the Multimedia Journalism class this week to talk about what they’re doing and where this is all heading.
He got the “five things all graduating journalists should know” question and answered thusly:
- Report — Journalism is all about connecting with subjects, the media doesn’t matter. Young students are afraid to ask questions — don’t be.
- Be able to handle audio
- Be able to handle still photos, especially strobes
- Be able to handle video
- Team Work — Share ideas, communicate with your co-workers
