Broadcasting Class Visits WWL-TV
As the school year comes to an end, the new STA Broadcasting class had an exciting field trip to enjoy at the WWL-TV Channel 4 studios in New Orleans.WWL Executive Producer Dominic Massa hosted the students as they toured the studios, interacted with anchors and reporters, visit the editing and control rooms, and watch the noon news live!
Deke "Big Chief" Bellavia teaches the class for STA and also is the sports director for WWL-AM. "I can tell you that WWL-TV is a legendary television station with tremendous tradition that is respected across the country," said Bellavia. He arranged the tour to allow the students a behind-the-scenes look at the "day-to-day operations of a major media outlet."
The class also recently spent time at the studios of the "Southeastern Channel," located on the campus of Southeastern Louisiana University.
