smartphone radio journalism

Nowadays, we all have access to an abundance of platforms on which to consume our news. For instance, some people like the visual aspect of television or the internet. On the other hand, others may find it easier to absorb information by turning on their radio in the car or putting on a podcast while exercising. 

Since radio journalism is undoubtedly important nowadays, knowing how to produce your own audio content is an especially valuable skill. However, there is still a misconception that expensive material is required to produce a quality show.
