This is the radio show that my group put together. My group decided that we would all record about five minutes worth of content, plus an advert and a bumper. We decided to do a news segment for our radio show, focusing on stories that happened during the second season of The Wire. I decided to do the discovery of Sobatka’s body as a three minute segment. I also pulled in information about Ziggy’s arrest to give the story some more context. I also decided to do the deaths from the tainted drugs in the prison, and pulled in information about overall drug use in prison, also to give the story some context. I decided to give both of my stories some more context, because this is something that you hear news reports doing all the time. They will tell you about a specific crime, and then sometimes tell you about a trend or connections to other stories.
The advert that I submitted was the one that I made for the UMW radio advert assignment. I also used the radio bumper that I had made using the intro music from The Wire, and then I made another one like using the music from the first season.
Also I made a bumper sicker for our radio station. The main logo was designed by another group member, and was sent to me.
