This week, our Media Teens and mentors stepped out of the classroom and into the newsroom! Our gracious hosts at WMAQ–the NBC affiliate in Chicago–took us behind the scenes to show us what it takes to get a newscast on-air. Our students spoke with morning news anchor Kim Vatis and learned all about floor directing from Nadiene Aloisio. They saw how the show is run from the control room and even got to sit at the anchor desk.
It was truly a wonderful experience for our teens. Thank you to everyone that made this trip happen, especially our tour guide Carl Hickman.
