  • Idea of a multi-media journalist when I left Capital BBC London – tri-media newsroom 2009 the year of social media for me 2010 teaching sessions for EBU
  • 3 Not a skill but an enthusiasm to tell a story across platforms. The possibilities that sound, vision and text each bring. 4 Its not just about your radio frequency and website anymore. The web offers limitless opportunities to broadcast. RadioKate suggests social media is the fifth platform. Brett Spencer, New Media Editor 5 Live “thinking about how to get the story beyond your own outlet”. 5 Particularly relevant to a reporter in the field – time is tight – manage yourself. Means taking care of yourself.. One BBC local reporter.. when are you next going to get a chance to get a drink/eat. 6 Avoid duplication of effort. Think about how your content could benefit other outlets. 7 Time management. Working efficiently. 10 Managing expectations. Social media.

    7. 7. “ I know social media isn't traditionally a &quot;platform&quot;, but I think that it is fast becoming one. I know people think that Twitter is just a matter of 140 characters, but used well it is a very powerful tool and I've been building some great connections through it...So in terms of skills, well, I'm a radio producer and journalist - and I've used those skills on-air and online to produce content, but I'm also a communicator, and that is the main skill I've been using in social media. It's about the connections, the trust, the engagement with people.” @RadioKate
