By |2018-02-27T10:39:26-08:00February 21st, 2018|Videos 2016-17|

To begin Scholastic Journalism Week (SJW), Jim Boren, former executive editor and senior vice president of The Fresno Bee, came to the FC campus to teach Feather journalists and answer questions, Feb. 15. Boren’s 48-year career in journalism began while he was attending Hoover HSin Fresno. The newspaper adviser inquired if he would be interested in covering sports for the school paper. Boren accepted the invitation and loved it. Upon graduating, he attended Fresno City College, and later Fresno State, with a bit of doubt as to what he wished to pursue. Boren landed on journalism as his major and at the age of 19, The Fresno Bee offered him a position during the summer which ultimately evolved into a permanent full-time job in 1972. The following video highlights a few of Jim Boren s thoughts as he shared his past journalistic experiences with the feather staff, Feb. 15.  Jim Boren worked for The Fresno Bee for 48 years, retiring after 48 years of service. Senior videographer, Jaden Ventura, filmed and edited the video below.

How to create a podcast

By |2018-02-20T09:23:06-08:00January 29th, 2018|Videos 2017-18|

In today’s world of media and technology, audiences expect to see something more than just text in an article. One way to make an article more interactive is to add a podcast. The Feather incorporates interview style podcast in articles to help engage the audience. The reader can listen to the podcast without opening a different tab, thus allowing them to continue reading the article. Podcasts immensely add to any publication, but that is not the only thing they can be used for. Some businesses are now requiring their employees to know how to record and post a podcast.  Even colleges are implementing podcasts into their lectures or assignments.Podcasts also add to articles because the listener is able to hear the tone and voice inflections of the speakers. In this way, the article comes to life, as the reader/listener feels as though they were present when the event occurred.
