PISF Continues Our Weekly Off-Island Trips
Channel 10 News Station
By Raya, PISF 4th Grader
Have you ever wondered what it is like at a news studio? If you have, keep reading this article and I’ll tell you what it’s like! On December 6, 2014 the whole school went to Channel 10. Did you know that Channel Ten’s symbol is a peacock? One of the first rooms we saw was the control room. We also got to see the news room! The news room is where the stories are found. We also got to say Hi to Frank Colletta while we were there. He’s really nice. Then it was off to the studio! The studio is where all of the filming goes on. When we got there we got to meet Kelly. She does the weather. She showed us how it’s done. One of the tools she uses is the blue screen which allows her to change the backgrounds. They don’t use a green screen because then people with blonde hair get a green halo around their head. If you watched the afternoon news that day you almost got to see us. While Frank was on the air we were right next to him, but not close enough to be seen on the news.
