Carolina Insider

Carolina Insider is a series of short newscasts featuring news and information with a hyper-local focus.  Stories affecting USC students, Midlands residents and people from across the Palmetto State and Southeast region take center stage.

Students in Power Producing learn to craft shows of their own.  The course is designed to mimic the real-world experience of working in a deadline-driven news environment.

Under the guidance of Laura Smith, students are assigned to one of two news teams and rotate through a range of editorial and production positions throughout the semester — including producer, associate producer/teleprompter operator, anchor, field reporter, director, technical director, audio operator and floor manager/camera operator.
