This past week, June 17-20, KRTS led a workshop as part MISD Summer Shake-Up. Fifth and sixth graders trained to be radio reporters – in the field, on the air and at the editing table.
After learning how to operate equipment and performing practice interviews on eachother, the team dispatched to business around Marfa to ask questions such as:
What do you like about Marfa?
What do you think about the art in Marfa?
Do you think this town needs more entertainment?
Do you feel safe in Marfa?
If you had the chance to leave Marfa, would you.
and, finally…. do you like cheese? And why?
The work of our newly minted troupe of radio producers will air Monday on KRTS.
