Understanding the heart of good media

Understanding the heart of good media (Anton Harber)

14/09/2017

 

On 5 September 2017 Anton Harber*, Adjunct Professor of Journalism at the University of the Witwatersrand, paid a visit to Bush Radio.

As part of his visit we asked him to speak with the interns as part of our staff development sessions.

He shared his thoughts on a range of issues ranging from what makes a good story to fake news.

Anyone interested in journalism and the media should take a listen.

This is an audio recording of that discussion.

*Anton Harber is Adjunct Professor of Journalism. His research interests include journalism; media; and history of South African media. Harber is the Founding Editor of the Mail & Guardian newspaper (previously known as the Weekly Mail). Previously, he also worked as Sub-Editor for the Sunday Post and Sowetan newspapers and as Political Reporter for the Rand Daily Mail. Between 1997 and 2001, Harber was the CEO of Kagiso Broadcasting and between 1998 and 2001, he was the Executive Director of Kagiso Media Ltd. Harber has held a number of other positions such as Chair of the South African Conference of Editors (in 1991), Chair of the National Association of Broadcasters (in 1998) and Chair of the Freedom of Expression Institute (in 2010).  – source: University of the Witwatersrand

We asked Natasha and Siviwe about their experience.

Natasha said; “The course was a great learning opportunity that sparked great conversations and debates around the arts. We learned a lot about writing and how to approach topics not only in the arts but journalism as a whole.”

“The CTIJF photojournalism workshop was interesting and informative, it taught me how to take pictures which one can write a story about. I learnt the pre & post production of pictures and how to set your camera for low light and taking pictures for events.” added Siviwe
