Tips in becoming a good journalist 記者、編輯
2009-06-19 19:39:58.0 網誌分類: 校園生活
 

I was the director of a Financial Media Institute (財經新聞研討班) held recently at HKBU. The week-long workshop was organized by HKBU’s School of Communication, Fudan University’s Journalism Department and the US-China Education Trust. We accepted about 50 students from Hong Kong, Macao, and the mainland, including 7 working journalists. The objective was to train them to become competent (能幹的) financial reporters.

One of the 14 speakers was Mr Gregg Fields, a recipient of the coveted Pulitzer Prize (普立茲新聞獎). The prize in journalism is equivalent to the Oscars in motion pictures.

Mr Fields talked about interviewing, reporting and writing techniques with examples and anecdotes (小故事). With regard to interviews, he suggested that journalists get well prepared beforehand, finding detailed information about the subject (訪問對象) and writing down the key questions, lest (唯恐) they slip out of the journalists’ mind.

During the interviews, the reporters should take note of what they hear as well as what they witness. To give the subject a sense of control (主動權) is the lubricant of interviews, Mr Fields said. When it comes to tough questions, reporters should try to create a “safe place” for the interviewees so that they would give their side of the story. Mr Fields also advised that reporters should stay calm when they encounter appalling (不知所謂) answers or are overwhelmed by the subject’s charm (魅力).

As to writing skills, Mr Fields gave three tips. First is to read extensively (廣泛) to  “steal”  or learn from other reporters’ styles and tones. His second tip is to tell a tale instead of producing a term paper. That is to say, reporters are not there to only educate the readers. His third tip is that reporters should think it through why they are doing the story. Mr Fields also shared his skills in writing good leads (導言),  making them analogical (相對性), anecdotal (故事性) or historical (歷史性). With a good beginning, reporters then try to fill the body (主體) with scenes and write an appropriate ending. He warned that they should be careful with every word they use and try not to inundate readers with statistics or numbers.

In a nutshell (總括來說), Mr Fields said reporters should get well prepared for a news story and always ask why. They should strive to provide fresh, interesting and informative news to the readers.


Some students at the workshop visit Hong Kong Economic Journal to learn from practicing financial journalists.

由七月七日開始,上街的包包裡除了身份證、八達通、錢、手提電話、紙巾、口罩、消毒洗手液以外,還有多一件必帶的東西,那就是環保購物袋。「香港人的包袱很重」——這話一點不假。 五毫的環保徵費事小,趕不上潮
