Learning About News Firsthand

So this pretty amazing thing happened a couple weeks ago that involved Joshua being recognized for volunteering at the food pantry that is hosted at our church.

Hopefully sometime I'll get around to putting more on here at that. Having that experience gave me a contact I could ask for a tour of a local news station. He agreed! Kurt Williams from WTKR News Channel 3 showed us all around the news station and we learned so much and had a great time!

We got to see the news desk and even were able to watch them reporting the news live!

We learned about the green screen the weather guy uses and that it's  bad idea to wear a green tie when you're in front of it.

It's also very hard to figure out left and right to point to the right cities.

 The control room was pretty cool! I'm amazed that they're able to watch so much at the same time and make sense of it all!

The guys watched 

while Nathaniel and I hung out in the halls so we didn't disrupt anyone.

It was an amazing experience!
