Looking for an idea for Project Watchdog? All you need is a public audience, a TV and VCR.
A 30-minute reel from the PBS series “Local News” that aired last fall is available to all SPJ chapters for $13, plus $1.50 shipping and handling.
This video provides a look at how TV news is made and how local TV journalists do their jobs. It examines the bean counting and newsgathering sides of the business in a fast-paced, thought-provoking way.
It is an excellent introduction to TV journalism for the public and journalism students.
Please reserve your copy today by calling SPJ national headquarters at 317/927-8000.
Project Watchdog is SPJ’s initiative to engage the public in a dialogue about the role of a free and ethical news media in American society. Chapters are required to have one Project Watchdog session during the program year.
