Why Live TV Would Be Bad In High School

In a word – drama. I used to work at a PBS station on a college campus. The students were required to put in hours as technical crew or on-air talent. Many of them were very good or at least eager to learn. They wanted to know how to improve. But every now and then you got a total goof ball who took the class because it sounded like fun. When the found out how much work was involved – so they would screw up or act out. Drama.

Check out this clip from a FOX station as the reporter and anchor have it out – reminds me of high school. This is why all of our broadcasts are taped.
