  • VOA TRAINS AUCC JOURNALISM STUDENTS

    Ten (10) final year journalism students from the African University College of Communications (AUCC) have benefitted from 5- day training on modern trends in broadcast journalism by Bill Torrey of The Voice of America (VOA).  The training took place at the US embassy..

    Speaking at  the training, Bill Torrey, Director of Operations for the U.S. International Broadcasting Bureau Office of Marketing and Programme Placement, explained to the student journalists that thorough knowledge of the target audience and how they used the news was critical to the success of all broadcast media organizations.

    He encouraged the students to ensure that their listeners got quickly interested in their news stories by not forgetting to tell them why it was important for them to care about their stories. 

    Mr. Torrey informed the students that new media also presented a really cost effective way for media houses to reach and interact with a global audience since any news that appeared on the new media sites could be stored, searched and shared  by anyone with access to   the internet.

    A Level 400 journalism student of AUCC, Mr. Henry Obimpeh, who  participated  in the  workshop, had this to say about the  training, “  I have been simply amazed at how new media  and current technological   equipment  can be employed to  make broadcasting simple and relatively less expensive to operate .”

    The General Manager of ETV Ghana, Mr. J.O.T. Agyeman, advised the students that it was important for them to brand themselves properly whenever they went seeking for jobs in the broadcast media at the end of their schooling. 

    The Dean of AUCC Journalism department of AUCC, Mr. Ato Amoaning–Annan expressed his satisfaction with the high level of interaction that took place between the  student journalists and  the professional journalists which exposed  the students to what was  actually  expected of them in the real world.

    The President of AUCC, Hon. Kojo Yankah said in an interview, “I am proud that our journalism students were selected to participate in this training at a time that AUCC’s medium-term strategic plan is to elevate the University’s status to become a leader in communication education in Africa”. 

    AUCC has a long standing relationship with VOA  and other  internationally recognized VOA staff  who have  visited AUCC to  share their  professional experiences with  the students have been  Mr. Shaka Ssali (Straight Talk Africa)  and Mr. Peter Clottey (International broadcaster).
