From June to December in 2017, I worked as a video intern and subsequently a part-time junior reporter at Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK), the public broadcasting station in Hong Kong. During my time as a video intern, I mainly produced videos for its online news website, in which I was responsible for editing news clips, translating Cantonese and Mandarin speech into English subtitles, captioning visual stories and shooting events such as press conferences. As I became a junior reporter later on, I reported on current affairs in Hong Kong and produced audio packages for RTHK’s English Radio News Programme.
The following are selections of my work in RTHK. Note that some of the audio clips and videos are no longer available on RTHK’s website.
