Woodsdale Students Practice Journalism Skills with Tiger News


One local elementary school has been working hard producing future news reporters, anchors or even game show hosts.Woodsdale Elementary School has been putting together some very impressive news broadcasts.

A group of nearly 30 kids help conduct interviews, write stories, shoot video and produce the Tiger News. 

The staff does it all on their own time, meeting either before or after school to work on projects that include school news, announcements and even game shows. They are totally responsible for all of the writing and editing that goes into putting together an on air project. 

“I like doing the interviewing, when people come in to our school like we are doing right now and the principal and teachers at our school,” Tiger News Reporter Ty Winesburg said.

This is the third year for the program and the kids actually have to fill out job applications to be involved. 

“It gives you preparation in case you want to go into television or if you want to be on the news,” Tiger News Reporter Aiden Baker said. “This is a good start cause you are starting young and you have a good experience and you know how to do it well.”

School officials said the number of students involved has increased each year.

WTRF looks forward to meeting the rest of the Tiger News staff as they are going to stop by our studio for a visit.
