Kentucky’s PBS Reporting Lab Students at KET

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014 by Jeff Gray, KET

Students from Pleasure Ridge Park High School, Jefferson County, along with students from Hardin County High Schools, visited KET in preparation for participation in the PBS Student Reporting Labs project, a regular feature of the evening PBS Newshour television program.

KET Public Affairs Producers Bill Goodman and Renee Shaw, along with KET Education Division Producer Laura Krueger, talked to the students about interview planning and production. KET Production Division’s Brandon Wickey and Paul Smith spoke on field video production, and in the KET Media Lab Jeff Gray demonstrated greenscreen video effects for students, who then explored making
some themselves.


All video-producing schools should take a look at the PBS Student Reporting Labs’ Curriculum page on the project website for excellent teacher materials, example student news reports, and news production tutorial videos by Gil Garcia and his students from Austin High School, Austin, Texas. Great stuff!
