KSBY Exploring a TV News Station -- Kathleen Choal
Are you curious about how a TV station works? What it takes to get a newscast on the air? How a news anchors scripts are prepared? How news stories are chosen for airing? How a weatherperson uses a green screen to report the weather? How social media is impacting TV journalism? How technology has changed and is used today?
You will meet Kathleen Choal, KSBY President and General Manager of the station, who will share the answers to these questions and share many stories with you. There will also be a Q&A session where all participants will have a chance to ask about other subjects of interest..
After the class, we will be treated to a tour of the station and have a first-hand experience of how it operates.
