Please report to the Digital Media Lab on time next Monday, March 19, 2pm. We will first discuss our visit to CNN, then travel to Quarry Bay to see the network’s HK facilities. After the visit, you’ll be on your own. Transportation back to HKU will not be provided.
You will have the opportunity to listen to several CNN journalists and ask them questions about their various jobs. They may include persons from the Assignment Desk, Control Room and Video Editing Operations, and Line Producing, as well as potential others. In preparation for the visit, please think of questions to ask while you are there. You will be asked to write a short summary of what you’ve learned from the CNN visit.
