After School Program: From Simple Hobby to Passion to Rewarding Career

Written by Joe Garozzo, Director of Educational Media

When I was a kid, I remember picking up my dad’s old camcorder and recording anything and everything that crossed my path. I would spend weekends, school vacations, and summers making movies with my friends. This is how I first discovered the great big world of video production – it was a creative and technical outlet for me to express myself. At first, it was as simple as grabbing a camera and shooting, but eventually I found out it was so much more.

I recently attended the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA) conference in St. Paul, MN. Geared toward professionals working in municipal and county government, it was a great meeting point to learn as well as share different initiatives that are bringing information to constituents. Discussions underscored the changing landscape in how government will need to be flexible, thoughtful, as well as innovative in the near future to address the needs of community stakeholders.

Hands-On Broadcast Journalism Training

Written by Jenn Adams, News Director - October 03, 2014

Every three months or so I get inquiries from students in high school and college about becoming an intern for Newton News, so I send them an application and a description about what the internship entails. Once the application is completed we set up a face-to-face interview to go over the internship in more detail. This is where I see students get those “deer in the headlights” looks. Why? Because I explain to them that in order to do the job necessary as an intern, they must go out with the camera and get the interviews and footage on their own… I don’t go with them. This is for a few reasons: I would take over the shoot if I were there, I need to see what they’ve learned and let them make those important mistakes that are inevitable with all interns, and I need them to build their confidence so they see that they in fact, can do this. I do give them my cell number and encourage them to call for any reason if they have any questions about operating the camera.
