Eighth graders from Pecatonica School District learn about different careers at WKOW

MADISON (WKOW) – Students from Blanchardville Middle School took a field trip to 27 News to learn about the many different jobs at the station.

You see a few of our jobs on TV, like anchors, reporters and meteorologists. But many people work behind the scenes to produce successful newscasts everyday.

Photographers shoot and edit stories that anchors read, producers plan out what content makes it to TV, directors control the look of the newscast by setting camera shots with different graphics and master control makes sure our signal gets sent to the airwaves.

But that’s not all, there are sales people to fill commercials with local ads, web designers to maintain our websites, engineers to install hardware, and a marketing department to set up and publicize community events.

Thanks to the students and staff for visiting! It was wonderful having all of you here.

If you would like to set up a school tour of our station, please email Erin Weiss: eweiss@wkow.com.
