The Northeast Community College broadcasting instructor, Brian Anderson, drove eleven students to Sioux City for this very special tour. “We are so thankful to have industry partners, like KCAU, that are always open to helping our students learn more about the media industry.  This trip was taken at an opportune time for our students, as they will begin to broadcast their own news program on Hawk TV starting September 6,” Anderson said.

Students were given the rare opportunity of getting to see how a newscast is produced and aired in the news control room. They also got to see the 5 p.m. live news broadcast, an amazing opportunity for anyone. “It really opened my eyes to what I want to do in a few years,” Viewpoint Editor, Marissa Lute said. “It really put things into perspective, schooling wise, and what all the opportunities at Northeast can give me.” Anderson said he expects students to work and perform at an industry level. “Seeing KCAU’s anchors and other crew members working in their element, helps to set that industry standard for our students.”
