Leticia, Age 10
 
On November 15, 2011, the GAAH Press Club went to WZZM to see different studios. Matt Campbell showed us the Information Center where there was a sportscaster, and we saw reporters working on their reports. We also went to see the weather deck and there was an old camera that was SD, and a new HD camera that is not used yet.  
 
My favorite part was when we went to see the studio and read from the teleprompter. I liked seeing pictures of the famous guest stars too.

On November 15, 2011, the GAAH Press Club went to WZZM News. First we went to the information center. After that we went to the control center, and then we saw the studio. Finally, we went to see pictures of which celebrities were on WZZM.
 
My favorite part of WZZM was when we went to the studio because we got to read the teleprompter.

 

Naudia, Age 10
 
We went to WZZM News and Matt Campbell showed us how the machines worked. He also showed us where the guest stars sit. My favorite part was going inside for the first time.
 
We learned how they have cameras on highways and can see when accidents happen. I thought it was fun seeing the people working on the news stories for that night. I really liked when we went outside and were pretending that we were on the news.

On November 15, 2011, the GAAH Press Club went to WZZM. I really liked the teleprompter because we got to read things from it. The teleprompter is like a mirror with words on the bottom. I also got to see the Weather Deck, which was fun. It looked like we were on the weather show channel!
