STUDENT NEWS NETWORK MEETING MONDAY, FEB 6 AT 4:15 pm to 5:15 PM a few weeks ago I announced plans to start a new program in town--student news network. Students will have the opportunity to report the news, anchor and produce TV news shows and express their views on issues that interest them. We have had a number of meetings with students since I first started SNN. We have about 50 students working on the project and hope to air our first show in five or six weeks. Alan Brody of iBreakfast.com and Mo Krochmal, a former NY Times reporter who deeveloped the first social TV model as a Hofstra University Journalism professor, are donating their time to the start up of SNN. Town Clerk Judith Beville is also involved in the program. If you are a student and want to get involved, please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
On Monday (Feb 7) SNN will meet at 4:15 to 5:15 PM at Greenburgh Town Hall. We are asking students to be ready with story ideas. Tell us what you need to know about--writing, video shooting, editing, radio/podcasting, interviewing. We will form training groups.
