This past Wednesday, October 7th, the Wareham High School AV Club put on their first episode of Wareham Viking News At 5; Wareham's brand new live news show! The show featured key events going on in the town and other local areas, and very important news in our community. Topics discussed ranged from the first day of hybrid learning for students, to the closing of local movie theaters. News like this will be given out on our show from now until the foreseeable future every Wednesday.
The show was produced by Christian Fernandes, AV Club Advisor, and Indiana Troupe, AV Club President. Sports reports were done by Laura Clements and the weather was done by Alexander Burdick. Emma Arcaro (that's me!) hosted the show.
All in all, it was still a great experience. This is something that the club has been working on together since August, and it is crazy that this is finally happening. And now that it is finally in motion, I hope we pick up momentum and keep this running for many years to come. With the launch of our new news show and our very successful blog, it's safe to say this has been a pretty good start to the 2020-21 school year.
As Vice President of the club, it was a goal of mine for us to go live just once this year for one of our shows. However, I was pleasantly surprised and very excited to undergo this project where every single week, starting at the beginning of the year, we are going live. That is a major jump from doing an edited recording every week for just Wareham High School, opposed to our new show for the whole town. This is a very exciting time, and I hope that as years go on, this project continues to grow and grow.
We would also like to thank Soft as a Grape for our new WCTV polo shirts and face masks. They are so incredibly soft and comfortable. Special thanks to Raymond Nicoletti at Soft as a Grape for the help. You can visit their selection of masks and other clothes at www.softasagrape.com. Wareham Viking News is live at 5pm every Wednesday. Tune in on channel 9 for Comcast/Xfinity users, and channel 30 for Verizon/Fios users.
