You are a radio news writer for the following stories. You are to rewrite these stories into broadcast style. You will turn in five different sheets of paper (each page will have a different news story on it). You must write short, sweet, and to the point, leaving out unnecessary information but keeping in pertinent details. Your lead sentences must be written in present, present-perfect, or future tense and must include the 5 Ws (Who, What, When, Where, and Why). Three points will automatically be counted against you if your lead sentences are written in tenses other than present, present-perfect, or future tense. Your second and following sentences may be written in past tense if you wish. Your stories may not exceed five sentences each. One point will be counted off for each misspelled word, grammatical mistake, or for not writing in proper broadcast style. Refer to the Writing for Broadcasting Tips in the Modules section of Canvas for assistance. EACH LINE OF YOUR TYPED STORIES MUST BE DOUBLE SPACED, ALL WORDS MUST BE IN CAPITAL LETTERS, AND THE CITY (not the state) MUST BE INCLUDED IN YOUR LEAD SENTENCES. ALSO, YOUR ASSIGNMENT MUST BE STAPLED.
REMEMBER: You are writing for broadcast, not print. You do not have a dateline but you must mention the name of the city in the lead sentence. Local is not the name of a city.
NOTE: This is a news writing exercise. These are not true stories.
Lead sentence must include Where, Who, When, What and Why.
Each story must include the following heading in the top left hand corner:
