Much of my experience in the journalism school at MU was reaffirmed by our media excursion to Bariloche this past week. We were fortunate enough to follow a reporter for a regional news station, Canal Seis, on a day’s work. He negotiated with all of his interviewees to allow us to sit-in on live interviews. We saw the reporter question politicians, an ombudsman, a police chief and the head of a regional electric corporation.
Each interview revealed issues and progressive solutions occurring within Bariloche and Patagonia as a whole. Most interesting to me were the stories regarding a police scandal and their burnt building and the project regarding the villa renovation. Our group eventually returned to the broadcast station in order to see the stories aired on television during the 2 p.m. news segment.
Once I returned from the mountainous landscape to the city line of Buenos Aires, I geared up for a long day of events for Avant-Garde. Much work has been leading up to this day which hosted THREE events, two for Johnson & Johnson and one for Samsung. Kylie and I went to two of the three and assisted in tasks during preparation, execution and clean-up. The events were pretty thoroughly organized, so there weren’t many tasks to do. However, again, getting to experience and observe the process was a lesson within itself as I saw the tangible product to all of their and our hard work.
