The Beat

The Beat was developed as a spin off of a program that had been attempted in the past but failed. Taking the reins on this project as the producer and editor, I attempted to create a news program that was able to cut out the fluff and get right down to the brass tax. At the very start we knew that we did not want our program to be overly wordy and spacey, we wanted something that was conversational yet to the point. I feel as though we have come extremely close to doing just that.

Objective

Broadcast news is more than just telling a story from the angle at hand, it is finding a new angle in which to tell the same story everyone else already has. Getting a different perspective and beating the competition in creative effective story telling is what I can bring to your news team.
