WIBW-TV was also there to help steer kids towards a bright career in television news or mass communication.

Students rotated through 20 minute class sessions each, and were encouraged to ask questions about getting started in their perspective careers.

Freshman Ali Reed said it was a fun experience for her, because she wants go into broadcasting, and thought it was useful learning about the differences from night side to day side in news.

Fellow student Ty Richardson echoed a similar sentiment.

"I've always liked, and watched the news as a kid, and I kind of want to do weather. You just have to stay motivated and you can never quit,” he said.
