Attend a Friday Sidelines meeting at 2 p.m.
I attended the meeting on Friday, April 6. I didn’t write for Sidelines this semester because my schedule is more busy than last semester, but I took the time to revisit the meeting in the CIM. The way that the meetings goes is most of the time, you sit with the column you’re writing for and then when it’s time to start, the Editor-in-chief Brinley Hineman starts off with her greeting and housekeeping notes along with Managing editor, Marissa Gaston from the articles that stood out in that week.
After, everyone splits up in either the sports, lifestyles or news section and talk about pitches or get an assigned story that the editor provided. There were roughly about 9 people in the Lifestyles section which is the one I sat with. The editor of lifestyles is Tayhlor and assistant lifestyles editor is Wendy.
I’ve noticed that from this semester versus last semester, there are more fun and feature stories that are being published such as listicles, reviews and round-ups. For example, Delaney Dickey pitched a story on how to avoid end of semester stress with top Netflix picks. BingNan Li is doing a video story on tips from students on how to manage stress at the end of the semester. Overall, there were multiple pitches and it was good to see that this semester a lot of students were interested in writing something that they wanted to write about, instead just events.
Attend a 9 a.m. student media meeting.
I attended the student media meeting on Tuesday, April 10 in the CIM conference room. Not a lot of students are attending to this meeting this semester says Mike Osborne. He said at least one person from each student media would attend these meetings, but only one person has been attending, when it’s usually at least 10 student. Mike Osborne, news director of WMOT-FM, pitches his stories that he is doing in the upcoming week. He says that usually other student media outlets attend this meeting, so they can hear what other stories they’re doing that another could help out on.
This meeting is suppose to be a way for Sidelines, MT10 and WMTS to collaborate on stories and hear out ideas. Keenan Taylor was the other student that attended the meeting, and he was here to do this for his Editing project too. Then, Rusty, Annie and Brendan joined us later.
Mike Osborne begins what he is working on this week such as: pointing out there are 14 candidates to replace Megan Barry, Nashville baseball Sounds team will play their home opening game in Nashville this afternoon at 2 p.m., Sunday liquor sales passed in Tennessee and both sides of the debate are Republicans with the vote of 55-35. Senate will make final vote on Thursday. Today marks equal pay day for women in the U.S. and it takes 15 months for women to get a raise–men to earn is 12 months. There were numerous news he announced for us.
Later, Sidelines sports editor, Rusty Ellis pitches his story for sports such as Belmont is coming to play home today for a baseball game with our MTSU baseball team.
News producer, Annie Hobbs shares her stories that MT10 is covering such as following up on the stalker incident that is happening on MTSU.
The meeting lasted for 30 minutes.
