It was a great opportunity for the students who are interested in a career in TV journalism.
Parties, Platforms, & Promises videoconference  Steve Hayslip and Amy Watson shared with our students how to start off your career in the TV business and they both also shared their personal stories. We got to see samples of their reporting and they graciously answered all our questions about the business.
Steve and Amy spoke to us and three other schools about how TV news is constructed, what makes a good interview and how serious news anchors avoid sensationalism in their reporting.
