The TV Studio is home to Newsbreak, the School’s live morning newscast. Every morning, from 8am-10am, students write, edit, assemble, produce and air the 15-to 30-minute Newsbreak show live on YouTube. Newsbreak features stories by students working for Caplin News in Miami and Washington, DC. Equipped with three studio cameras, a virtual set system, physical sets, a control room, wired and wireless mics, and a LiveU system to capture live reporting from the field, the TV Studio provides you with real-world television experience. You’ll have the opportunity to bring productions to life, learn the facets of control room production and discover what it takes to turn reporter content into vibrant productions — from traditional newscasts to Spanish-language programs.
In addition, you’ll learn the use of Adobe’s “After Effects” to build creative graphics that are used on-air to enhance stories for the newscasts and reporter packages. To supplement the work you’ll be doing in the TV Studio, you will also have the opportunity to work in the field with professionals to learn field production shooting, lighting and audio skills.
