What normally takes Warrior TV students two weeks to accomplish, they have a four-hour window to complete.
The "One-Day Broadcast Project" serves two purposes: 1.) It is a symbolic rite-of-passage for the seniors in the Radio/Television program, a thematic punctuation of a rigorous three-year journey in broadcast video production; and 2.) It provides the Advanced Radio/Television students the unique opportunity to replicate real-world, professional-grade, broadcasting experience as they prepare to begin the post-secondary experiences beyond Whiteland Community High School.
Mr. Clawson and the students treat the day as if Warrior TV were a functional, real-world, professional broadcasting facility: The producers get their story assignments at the beginning of the work day, they have a finite window of time for production/post-production, and they have to meet their deadline so the broadcast can be taped and published by a specific time.
The 2013-2014 "One-Day Broadcast" edition of Warrior TV News is published right here:
And good luck to Warrior TV's Class of 2015 as their "One-Day Broadcast" will have a lot to live up to!
