In the Webster City Community School District students get the chance to produce their own television show each week. The students in elementary, middle and high schools produce a show on what’s going on in the district.
The crew feature stories on sports, FFA, and events like a local blood drive.
WCTV has been on the air for 15 years and has won national recognition.
The students say they learn more than just news production
“School work you can plan for like an hour to do the work, while this you have to plan out exactly who you’re going to have at this certain time…how their schedule is going to intersect with your schedule,” says Mikey Paisley.
“It’s a super hard class but it is totally worth being in it 100 percent. It looks awesome on any resume. It teaches you a lot about time usage and deadlines,” says Megan Gilbert.
The local Mediacom channel carries the students’ show. It can also be seen online through the school’s website and can also be found on iTunes.
