This week I had a story about the Nov. 5 special election for a request by the Okemos School District for a seven and a half million dollar bond. If passed, the bond will go toward technology, security, and transportation for the district.
It was a story with so much depth to it; however, I was having so much trouble finding sources, or people to interview.
I played phone tag with plenty of people. I sent out a number of emails. I thought I did everything I could.
All of a sudden, I discovered something!
Open Line was interviewing a panel, consisting of five experts on my story–one being the superintendent of Okemos Schools.
Since I was crewing the show that night and they were all going to attend as guests, I was able to get more interviews than just one, which in the end, really benefited my story.
