Political Reporting
3-7 October
Politics is one of the major attractions
of the news media world over. Sri Lanka is
no diferent. It is Political stories that grab the
lion share of news bulletins as well as the front
pages. However the challenge is writing the
political stories without diluting the credibility.
Maintaining the impartiality and the balance of
the story is a difcult task. How can the journalists
cope with it? Tis weeklong course discusses the
critical elements in Political reporting providing
professional skills to tell the stories without
compromising integrity and credibility. Moreover
the course will enlighten the participants on
reporting the stories from a public perspective
rather than covering the political stories from a
politicians’ perspective.

One Person operation for Radio
14-18 November
As the frst ever Asian nation to launch the
radio under the British colonial rule Sri Lanka
has a proud history of nine decades of radio
broadcasting. Despite the emerging of several
forms of media during the period the radio
industry in Sri Lanka is expanding rapidly with
the booming of new radio channels. Over the
decades it has gone through many internal and
external revolutions. One of them is radio
operation. Many tasks done by several people
in the radio industry has shrunk to one person’s
responsibility, a norm widely accepted in
industry today. Tis course is to garner the
multi tasking of a radio personality to make the
radio journalists very future oriented.
