Y-Speak: Getting our feet wet

-A A +A

Saturday, March 22, 2014

NEWS have no boundaries and time. They are always everywhere, anywhere, and anytime whether the weather is good, better or worst.

Thursday was rainy, but that did not stop us from proceeding to the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) to browse through blotter reports. Now, I have experienced little of a field reporter’s life, how rain shouldn’t stop them from getting the news.

It can be difficult, but challenging and exciting.

There we learned that there are indeed a lot of incidents reported, but that you have to be meticulous enough to seek out the more sensible ones, the ones that will interest and inform the masses. By gathering sensible news, we encourage people to read.

We also learned that reporters have to take care of him/herself to keep him/her going. But most of all, to be friendly. (Lovely Aizyl A. Diwata/ University of Mindanao)
