- What were you asked to do?This unit was the start of a new era in PR writing class. We were asked to learn about broadcast writing and PSA’s. We were asked to learn about how to be clear, concise, complete, conversational, current and correct. We were also asked to learn about format because that is very important for broadcast writing.
- What can you pick up on now that you couldn’t before?I can pick up on how to write for broadcast. I did not know how to do this before this unit. This is important because it is a different style of writing, but in this day in age making videos and broadcast are stronger skills than ever.
- What else would you like to know about this skill set?I would like to know more about the history of broadcast and how it has evolved over the years. I would like to know about how it has changed for social media, or if it has always been the same.
- How does this particular skill set jive with your expectations of the responsibilities held by a public relations professional?
This definitely fits with what I have learned about PR writing. Knowing how to write PSA’s is important for PR because being able to communicate with the public and portray an image to the public is very important.
- How do you see this particular skill set helping you in your career?
I see this helping with my skill in many ways. Whether it comes from social media content creation or helping create a video for a political campaign. PSA’s can be a tool I can use in many story telling careers.
