What is b-tv?
Beginning in the fall of 2004, B-TV is one of only a few daily commercial-free, news broadcast for middle schools in San Diego County. The 5-minute broadcast of daily news and announcements is geared for middle school students, parents, and staff. Our news program is student produced; from story ideas and research, to production and to editing. The show is broadcast out to every classroom and office in the school. This talented team of students collaboratively works on story ideas, interview questions, taping, editing, writing the anchors scripts, and producing the show. When it comes down to show time they have put in many hours getting everything prepared. During the show there are many different jobs that must be filled. Viewers only see a very small percentage of what is actually going on while on the air. What you don't see are the students running the video cameras, media queue, sound technician, producer, and director. It may look like the anchors are doing it all, but without the whole team there wouldn't be much of a show. Students, parents, and teachers are encouraged to tune in to the show. Feedback is always welcome, and thanks for watching.
