All the frustrations we’ve ever felt while working for 519OnlineNews have totally been worth it…we did a hilarious joke edition of 519OnlineNews affectionately named 226OnlineNews.
Fake stories, fake names, fake everything….we didn’t even have consistent hosts. I wrote the script for the hosts and it was a total blast. We still tried to make the stories has good as possible; good lighting, good camera work, etc.
Let’s be honest — no one actually goes to 519Online for actual news. I think it’s a great way for us to practice reporting and working in a newsroom environment, but it’s not like the stories really matter in the long run. We decided to use the skills we’ve learned in the class to make a very memorable and fun show.
Here’s a gem that was shot in my kitchen.
