Bowling Green State University’s student-run TV news program BG24 News Live at 5:30 will start for the school year this coming Wednesday, October 13 at 5:30 p.m. If you live in Wood County, Ohio, and subscribe to Time Warner Cable, you can find this newscast on channel 6 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Some of the things I currently do with BG24 News are reporting, videography, editing, writing and DEKO graphics operation. Additionally, in the past I have been an anchor and a studio camera operator. I have worn all kinds of hats in this organization throughout the years I have been attending BGSU.
If you are a BGSU student and are interested in joining the BG24 News crew next semester, it would be a good idea to get a good look at what exactly everybody in this organization does now. If you ever want to check out what goes on in the newsroom every day we put on a show, feel free to drop by and ask around. Our newsroom is located in the basement of West Hall. You can also observe one of our live newscasts in our studio or in our control room depending on what specifically you want to do. The studio and control room are located inside the big double doors down the hallway on the first floor of West Hall.
So if you are a BGSU student and are majoring in Broadcast Journalism, Telecommunications or anything of that nature, BG24 News is a great hands-on organization to get some experience and preparation for the broadcasting career. Even if you are not a Broadcast Journalism or Telecommunications major, you can still join. So Time Warner Cable subscribers in Wood County take note, BG24 News can be found every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 5:30 p.m. on channel 6. And BGSU broadcasting students take note, we will be looking for new members as the next semester approaches (and we all know it will be here before we know it). It is a lot of hard work, but the experience is definitely worth it!
