My target audience for this article is mainly teens, the reason for this is because as Corey is a teen himself, those who are his age will be able to relate and understand. I have also included in the article some dates and times of events that those with the condition can attend to where they are able to meet others and talk about it together.
The magazine which will include my article in will be called ‘Nursing times’ and the magazine will include a few interviews with other individuals about different conditions, any recent news that is relevant to the magazine type, advice, shared practice and inspiration for nurses working in the care sector and much more.Scanner@sharp.local _20170612_091703

Vox pops ‘voi
ce of the people’ are when an interviewer approaches people ‘in the street’ and asks them simple questions about a certain topic. These people will be new to interviews and will often be nervous, flustered etc. Therefore, its important to make them feel relaxed and comfortable . The term ‘vox pop’ comes from the Latin phrase vox populi, random subjects are asked to give their views on a particular topic and their responses are presented to the viewer/reader as a reflection of popular opinion.
Interviewing is used through diversed journalistic contexts such as print media, TV, radio, online, news, sport, feature writers etc. Print media, such as newspapers and magazines, interviews are shown usually in bold text to attract the reader. Showing the questions the interviewer has asked following the answers underneath. In television purposes there are many types of interview styles used, for example, entertainment interviews are used for chat shows where actors, comedians, music artists etc will come on and talk about their latest work or any upcoming events. Emotional interviews are also shown on Arab on programmes like Piers Morgan life storys, which will give the audience an insight on the situation. Radio stations also use various interview techniques, Radio 1 uses entertainment interviews where they will interview different music artists to attract the younger audience they aim for. Documentary interviews are used on radio 4. Although you are not able to see the interview taking place, you are able to get an idea of the interviewees body language and emotion by the way they talk and how they talk. On news channels, interviews are often used when police are being asked questions about a precious investigation, when speaking to eye witnesses about a situation etc. These interviews are formal as they are informing people with people’s personal opinions, facts and figures. Sports interviews are often used after a match and before a game. For example, if a horse race were to be taking place, a jockey may be interviewed and asked questions on their predictions of the race, how they are feeling or any background information.
The main purposes of interviews are, interpretive expressing or explaining an opinion on a particular subject. Informational, presenting large amounts of information within an interview and emotional, to allow the audience an insight into the situation.
When interviewing, legal and ethical issues must be considered. Ethical issues in interviewing are, that the procedures are laid out in writing and that they are explained clearly to the interviewee before taking place. Interviewees have to be satisfied with the location where the interview will take place, they should also be offered an alternative if they are not happy with the original place such as somewhere private or public depending on the situation. Confidentiality is also an important concern and permission, any contribution that has been recorded, in written form, on tape or notes taken from the interview by the interviewer should only be used in accordance to the interviewees wishes. They should give written assent or an explanation must be given, permission will need to be given by the interviewee to allow anything to be published or shown publicly.
Regarding job interviews, the most common questions asked are about the interviewees strengths and weaknesses, about there selves, reasons to why they should work for them, what motivates them, why they want to work for them etc. Where as TV interviews will be more personal questions and in most occasions they are more relaxed.
Open questions are more likely to receive longer answers as they are trying to find out more through the questions they ask, they usually begin with what, why, how, when, describe etc. Examples of these questions will be ‘How would you describe yourself?’ or ‘What are you passionate about?’. Closed questions are likely to receive a short work or a single phrase answer. Examples of closed questions may be ‘Are you satisfied?’ or ‘Does that work for you?’.
