Welcome to Journalism 101: Introduction to Mass Media or what will become known from now on as the Experience Makers class. You are a special group of students who have selected Journalism and Marketing Communications as your major. Thus you are starting a journey of a lifetime. Either this profession of “searching for trouble” will possess you, or you will find out, quick and soon, that it is not for you. I am betting on the first.
It used to be that journalism was a profession of content making. It still is, but that is no longer enough. Journalist now are experience makers. Everyone can tell you what happened, but only a journalist can tell how what happened will impact and affect you. You are the one who will add the “What is in it for Me” to our old trusted six friends “What, When, Where, Who, Why and How!”
So, buckle up and get ready to embark on a journey of a lifetime.
