For those who have done 100 different stand-ups, to those who don’t even know what a stand-up is, making your stand-ups unique and your own is one way to stand out as a reporter…and standing out is definitely important .
This week, OU RTDNA will be discussing how to make your reporter stand-ups more unique and creative. We will welcome a man who has done his share of stand-ups, and knows how to personalize each one. Mark Bruce from WHIO-TV in Dayton will be Skyping in our next meeting, this Wednesday (Feb. 8) at 7:00 p.m. in our usual spot, RTV 371.
But don’t go too far, RTDNA will be meeting AGAIN on Friday (Feb. 10) outside RTV at 11:00 a.m. to let YOU write and shoot your own stand-up! We’ll record, edit your best take, and hand you a DVD with your stand-up so you can use it for your applications.
After working up an appetite practicing, join us for lunch at Chipotle!
