The Seminole Ridge High School Television Production Academy has teamed up with WPTV NewsChannel 5 to collaborate on a news story. WPTV Producer Toni May & photojournalist Maurice Moran met several times with our broadcast journalism students and encouraged them to produce a news package on an issue story of their choice.
Students considered multiple topics, but settled on tackling the subject of Underage Vaping. May and Moran gave advice and then watched as our students investigated the topic, researched, interviewed, wrote & edited their story. The finished product will air on WPTV’s 5 p.m. broadcast on Monday January 27th. WPTV is also producing a behind-the-scenes segment on how my staff produced the story.
Our segment is reported by Ashley Pellicone, produced and edited by Rachel Clarke and our photojournalists/associate producers are Cassi Narcus, Amanda Jewett, Hunter Wood, Magali Nicho and Anne Perry.
