The Greenburgh Tribune Edition
GREENBURGH, NY — April 2, 2022 — Greenburgh students interested in participating in our new Greenburgh Student News Network (GSNN-TV) broadcast are invited to attend the first meeting of the Greenburgh Student News Network via Zoom this Thursday, April 7th at 4:30P.M., DST.
GSNN will be a locally produced news broadcast featuring students who will report on local news issues/stories. We have enlisted the help of some local residents who have had local media and television experience, working for NBC News, who have volunteered to mentor the students who are interested in participating in the program. We have received expressions of interest from a number of highly motivated students who are excited about getting involved. Students who have not yet volunteered for the GSNN initiative are invited to participate. We’re looking for reporters, anchors and students who would prefer to work off camera as producers, directors, and the technical realm. We expect that the programs will air monthly. We may break up the broadcasts; engaging different broadcasts that will serve high school students, as well as for younger students interested in journalism. We will invite journalists to periodically speak to journalist students so they may share their experiences in the field, as wellas sharing their advice, and share the best practices they have gleaned and can now share with those interested in in their craft.
This initiative is coordinated by and is under the auspices of Greenburgh Town Clerk Judith Beville and Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner. Those students who are interested may direct eMail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
