Conventions of radio news

  1. 1. Conventions of Radio news I am going to be talking about all the conventions of radio news.
  2. 2. Regular time checks/Interviews with people concerned with the stories • Radio news have regular time checks because most people that are listening to it are going work or on the car going some where so they would talk about the traffic and have headlines about the today issues, they would use formal language when they talk about the headlines and news with serious voice. • Interviews with people that are concerned would usually come up when there's hot topic, they would ask someone to talk about the situation and have interview with them, which helps the listeners understand different peoples views of the situation.
  3. 3. Headline/formal language, serious voices. • Its important to have formal language while your on air because you would have so many listeners of all ages specially people going work because its going to be morning, so you would have to have serious voice introduce all the headlines then talk about the hot topics that are out and talk formal, so people can understand you. • Headlines are very important because people like to know all the things that’s happen right the minute so after the radio news say all the headlines, they would get in more details on each headline.
  4. 4. Weather reports/ sports news • Weather reports are important because most people that are listening to the radio news are going work or school, so its important that the radio news reports the weather so people know what to expect when they go outside. • Sports news are reported because some people are at work or not able to watch the football match, so they would turn on the radio, and they would inform them about the scores, that’s one example, so many people listen out for sports updates.
  5. 5. readers expand the story/Name presenters • News readers expand on the stories because they want people to understand the whole story since is radio and the listeners have to really listen carefully to understand everything, so they expand and get on details with the story. • When a radio news channel starts they would introduce them self then talk about their position.
  6. 6. Sound to introduce/identify the news Archival sound/Correspondents/reporters for all the additional info • They have sound to introduce the news, different radio station have different sounds, this grabs your attention so you would listen when you her the music. • Archival sound- is inserted in to the radio news, because this will be more realistic to the listeners, they will have live interviews hear everything that’s happening in that situation. • If the radio news have extra information that reporters have the will put them on live and speak about the situation that’s happening.
