Newsspeak Podcast: Viral Reporting

In our latest project, we ask the big questions to journalists reporting during the COVID-19 pandemic in our podcast.

NOONGAR RADIO NEWSROOM


Newsspeak members broadcast news bulletins on the station’s breakfast show and will be training radio volunteers to source and present their own news.

It is the very first dedicated news service for the station and the first project of this type in Australia.

“The students and I could not be prouder to be involved in this hugely important project – for Noongar FM, its listeners, and the Perth media landscape.”

-Rhiannon Arnold

THE LONELINESS PROJECT


Loneliness is one of the most fascinating words of our time. As our society has become super smart and super connected, it can sometimes feel like we’ve forgotten something fundamental.
Newsspeak members are focusing on several key demographics within society and investigating the impact a lack of social connection is having.

RED MY LIPS


In 2015 for our first project, students localised the Red My Lips campaign from the US, focusing on the prevention of sexual and domestic violence, reducing victim blaming, and bringing more men into active campaigning on this issue.

“Please let your students know how very impressed I am with their motivation and creativity.”

-Rosie Batty, 2015 Australian of the Year

PARKERVILLE CHILDREN & YOUTH CARE


Using journalism skills to tell important stories, our students interviewed various well known people in Perth, around the theme of the importance of a happy childhood. The videos were then given to Parkerville, who support children who’ve been abused.

BIKES AND YARNS DOCUMENTARY


Four students, alongside Glynn, filmed a story on the fantastic work done on suicide and depression awareness by the Black Dog Ride group. The resulting documentary was screened on Community TV in several capital cities in 2015.
