After completing this assignment, I gained a better understanding of the in’s and out’s of media announcing. A few of the techniques that I learned were how to properly breathe, control my pitch and volume, and record myself with a specified time limit.
I also was given the opportunity to teach myself how to use Garage Band. It was rather difficult at first, but I believe that after practicing layering the sound effects, that the jingles that I created tied my entire project together.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this assignment as I got to cover topics such as breaking news and the San Antonio Spurs.
