FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BVTV18 recruiting new young talent

The Blue Valley School District's Broadcast Technology program is looking for the reporters of the future.  Adviser Bruce McRoberts visits elementary and middle schools with story leads from building stringers.  With the assistance of staff, students are selected to act as cub reporters and tell about classroom activities and programs in their buildings.  The stories become part of the weekly morning newscast Good Morning, Blue Valley.


The
BVTV18 Student News Team is responsible for producing stories and the weekly newscast.  However many classroom activities and events occur while these high school students are in core classes at their respective schools.  Many stories otherwise missed can be presented to the viewers, parents, and patrons of the school district by these cub reporters.  Employing the talents of children in these lower grades encourages their interest in this medium and builds a base for young, upcoming broadcasting students for the high schools and the district program. 


Another new opportunity this year for students in grades 3 through 8 is the chance to be the guest weather person on one of the morning shows.  Youngsters complete an application form for their name to be included in a weekly drawing.  The successful applicants practice and present the weather live on cable television along with a member of the Student News Team.  Application forms are available at each building's main office.


For more information about these two opportunities for middle and elementary students, contact Bruce McRoberts at (913) 239-4142.
