CBS:19 Field Trip

We managed to squeeze one more fun field trip in before school starts tomorrow.

Val Thompson, the News Director at CBS19 News took us behind-the-scenes at their HQ in IX Park today! We learned all about the technology that brings news and weather to life on TV! From programmable video cameras to editing bays, we saw how the tools they use are applied in the TV station, and beyond, in other industries, like film and music production.

Chief Meteorologist, Travis Koshko, explained how he uses a green screen and weather data to record segments for daily broadcasts. His knowledge of atmospheric science and technology are critical to his job.

Junior and his friends returned to C4K excited to use our own green screen, cameras, lighting and editing software to make an original music video!
