The Journalism staff of Diamond Fork Junior High recently visited the studios of KSL TV, and the radio stations FM 100 and Arrow 103.5. Students were able to talk with reporters and ask them questions about a career in journalism. Students were invited into the broadcasting booth of FM100 and learned how the station functions. They were even present as the DJ broadcast live on the air. After investigating the working environments of professional journalists, students were also able to watch the live filming of KSL News At Noon.
Students were amazed at the level of effort that goes into each news broadcast. They also had many fresh and creative ideas to improve their own school news broadcasts. After the tours, many students expressed a desire to work in the journalism and broadcast fields. Good luck to these future journalists.
