Switching It Up

We’re dynamic, y’all!  Start off with a Shoutout?  Sure.  Add different maps or interstitial segments?  Yeah, boy!  There aren’t a lot of set rules for our format, so we’re working on switching it up a bit to keep things cooking.  This includes everything from when we air our interactive segments to how we set up the camera.  (This week, I had a few stand-up shots in front of the plasma-screen TV.  Last Friday, we were in a different studio altogether, with a huge wall behind me that showed off our graphics.)

We’re always looking for new approaches to our show, so if you have any suggestions or comments (thank you, Mr. Langhorst), please be sure to send ‘em our way.  And have a great and safe weekend – we know the Autumnal Equinox can get pretty crazy.  Or not.

    Dear Carl,

    The show is amazing. Every student is engaged while watching the show. They love the Shout outs and the anchors jokes. The news is relevant, reliable and rewarding for the students. It provides an excellent resource for student and staff alike. Best resource I have ever used, bar none. Keep up the excellent work.

    My class just loves CNNSN, we all can relate to it at a certain degree. Afterwards, we all discuss what we have learned and all have a great debate on isues we feel are important and concern us.

    I hope to see more things we can relate to.

    I love the new layout. I think it makes alot of sense. I mean, learn something, and then apply it to something else that is going on in the world. How cool is that?
