In the Video News Production classes at Saline High School, students learn to write, produce, and broadcast weekly news shows centered around Saline High. Signature programs include SHS Today, a news show focusing on a variety of topics at SHS, and Hornet Nation, covering every type of SHS sport.
Students can work hand-in-hand with the athletic department to produce promotional and ESPN style material for the school. This show is aired throughout the school year to the local SCTN channel 18 and the web. Students are also able to produce special interest shows working hand-in-hand with local community members. Articulation for students is available with Washtenaw Community College.
The Video News Production classes are an in-depth look at broadcast video and school news through digital media production. Students learn the techniques needed to write, produce and output news stories and video media that impact their school and community. The broadcast aspect of news media is met by training students in the school broadcast studio and with online learning experiences in video production projects. Each student is exposed to the latest broadcasting technology and techniques as they produce a weekly show or weekly events such as Sports, Plays, Musicals, Concerts, and Special Shows.
