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