Discover a local TV career: free workshops (Special)

Discover if a career in local broadcast television - including broadcast meteorologist - is for you with these free, behind-the-scenes educational workshops hosted online by WCNC Charlotte. Millions of students across the country missed important opportunities to learn from in-person internships or from job shadow programs. WCNC Charlotte has partnered with the Charlotte Area Association of Black Journalists and the CSB Media Arts Center, Charlotte, to make a difference by helping fill that knowledge gap by introducing juniors and seniors in high school as well as college students to the many career pathways available at their local television stations. The staff at WCNC Charlotte have put together elaborate presentations to mimic what a student would learn in a day of shadowing someone in a local newsroom or on a sales team or marketing the station. The week of June 7 at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., different departments will outline what their jobs are like, what it took for them to get to where they are, and what students should do to get themselves prepared for a similar career. Ever been interested in becoming a journalist? Do you know the multiple different paths to get to work in a newsroom? If not you, do you know a student who would be interested in learning about this?
