RADIOPHONIC JOURNAL . The Radio phonic journal genre is one the most used genres on the radio due to the flexibility of its structure, by mixing different contents inside a single program. A radio journal it is made by different sections that may include one or different issues from different fields like showbusiness, politics, culture, humor, or social analyses.
Dynamism, versatility and spontaniety are some of the main characteristics from a radio journal. Themes must not be extensive but specific, direct, making an entertaining show for the audience.
The radio phonic journal may include different journal genres such as: group discussions, interviews, news report, sounding, among others. The structure of the project must describe clearly the objective of each section via creative and original audio productions that gives variety and dynamism to the show.
The Radio phonic journal may be pre-recorded but live broadcasted is preferred, since live shows offer a sort of freshness, current issues being developed at the moment and allows the audience to a more active participation.
Originality is another element to be considered during the production of the Radio phonic journal; the selection or the right presenters for the thematic and the target of the show is crucial.
