Okay, the title of this post may seem a little irrelevant to News Reporting, but hear me out. Yesterday, things really took a different turn.
Upon arriving home, I stepped on a small booklet which revealed important information about the bush walk. The booklet also included quotes from Kay McIntyre, Chairperson of the Kaipatiki Local Board.
Since the booklet had all the basic facts, I thought I didn’t have to interview her. However, I emailed Kay to ask permission if I could use her quotes; she replied yes.
So then, I used all these information in order to develop the story.
In order to develop further, I interviewed two local residents and asked for their opinions. The interview was really quick. However, I was able to get enough local insights.
Next post will be the actual news story. Hope you like it.
