Are you interested in a future career in journalism, such as a TV news reporter or a newspaper writer? Are you wanting to learn more about the news, video production, video editing, sound, lighting, camera work, and more? Are you always finding yourself wanting to be the one to answer questions, or do you always like to know what's going on around town?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider joining the Wareham Viking News team. Wareham Viking News is Wareham's newest source of news, bringing both online news articles and television news broadcasts to the people of Wareham. The best part; WVN is staffed entirely by students (with help from WCTV staff and our A/V Club advisor).
Our members have lots of freedom to work on projects they feel passionate about, and also have lots of freedom to explore their specific field of interest. Whether it's scriptwriting, lighting, sound, newspaper writing, anchoring, video reporting, teleprompting, directing, producing, sports broadcasting, social media, or even meteorology, we have opportunities for you at WVN.
Our members have covered all kinds of stories relating to Wareham, and continue to search for stories around the clock to keep everyone in our community in the know. We are often some of the first people to hear about the news around town because of this.
The best part is, it is up to the student how involved they want to be. You can write reports on things you find interesting for our blog every so often. You can help out with our show when you're available either on set, or writing beforehand. You can make video reports for our show. Or you can do all of the above!
Whether you have no experience or lots of experience, you are just as valuable to our team. We teach all of our members the inner workings of our group and welcome everyone with open arms. We provide students with access to cameras, editing equipment, audio and lighting equipment, and more! This experience working with WVN has led to students getting internships, scholarships, and jobs in the industry. No matter what your plans are, this experience will be valuable to you. We promise!
Any students who are in grades 8-12 and attend Wareham High School are allowed to join. You must be in good academic standing to join. If you are interested in joining, reach out to A/V Club President Indiana Troupe at firstname.lastname@example.org, or A/V Club Advisor Mr. Fernandes at email@example.com.
