Hello everyone, you may not know this but, the PNN staff (and City High E-Club, but we mostly went our separate ways) went to a very special place and did a few interesting and quite exciting things: we took a field trip! More specifically, we went to the GVSU News Station in Grand Rapids, WGVU, an NPR station owned by GVSU. We had an amazing time on the trip, learning the ins and outs of broadcasting, recording PSAs, being interviewed by an interview legend on her very own radio show, and actually managing to record a full-length PNN episode in their very own studio.
Now I don’t speak for everyone, of course, however it personally was a very cool experience, seeing just how much actually goes into broadcast, and just how much complicated equipment is actually used for these professional productions.
In addition to this amazing opportunity of seeing an actual studio, we managed to get an exclusive PNN interview with one of the most influential broadcast interview correspondents, Shelley Irwin, and the introduction of a new member to the PNN team. As always folks, remember to smile every chance you get!
