Broadcast Journalism and Audio Visual

Are you interested in being in front of the camera? Or maybe filming and editing behind the camera. Broadcast Journalism is a great class to cover all the stories that are interesting to Johnson Students. We also work behind the scenes to help Drama and Music put on all the great shows that are produced at Johnson Middle School. We also use our school drones to create great aerial videos that are used in the school's Yearbook Video. If you are interested see Mr. Schammann.

Broadcast journalism is the field of news and journals which are "broadcast", that is, published by electrical methods instead of the older methods, such as printed newspapers and posters. Broadcast methods include radio (via air, cable, and Internet), television (via air, cable, and Internet) and the World Wide Web. Such media disperse pictures (static and moving), visual text and sounds.

Scripts for broadcast tend to be written differently from text to be read by the public. For instance, the former is generally less complex and more conversational. Radio and television are designed to be seen and heard sooner and more often than a daily or weekly newspaper.
