Experiment and Evaluate: How One Reporter Manages Her Workflow [VIDEO]

Feb 8, 2013

KUNC Reporter Grace Hood

How does a radio reporter balance the growing demands of a digital audience? It's not unusual for KUNC reporter Grace Hood to do the following for a story:

-gather audio
-live-Tweet
-take a photograph
-write and produce the radio story
-write the web story

As you develop your digital reporting skills, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. To avoid that feeling, Grace recommends the following:

1. Experiment.
2. See what worked and what didn't work. (ex: an audio postcard didn't get as many views online as a slideshow about a special effects shop)
3. Think about ways to be more strategic with your coverage. (Just like we have coverage plans for radio, have a coverage plan for digital as well.)
