Nease High School’s Wired Newscast Wins Student Television Network Excellence Award

On Saturday, March 12th, in a room filled with 1,400 of the best and brightest high school students from TV Production programs from around the country. Nease students were called to the stage to accept one of the most coveted awards offered at the high school level. This past week, students from around the United States flew in, from as far away as Hawaii, to attend the annual Student Television Network (STN) Convention in Orlando, Florida. STN embraces the educational components of broadcast journalism, video production, filmmaking, and media convergence by networking students and teachers with professionals in the industry. Affiliate schools stretch across the country and even into Europe. Each year, these schools are invited to go head to head, pitting their newscasts against each other in the Student Television Network Excellence Awards. The awards feature several categories of news production, including Monthly, Bi-Monthly, Weekly, Daily Taped and Daily Live News Show production, all judged by professionals in the field. One winner for each category is selected, named the Best Newscast in the country.

For the second year in a row, Nease submitted their Wired newscast in the Daily Taped Newscast category. Each week, Nease produces 6 Wired newscasts, as part of the Communications Academy curriculum. The broadcasts inform and entertain Nease students and staff daily, airing shows packed with original news stories, sports, and announcements. This year, the Student Television Network has recognized Nease’s Wired program as being the most professional daily newscast in the country, noted for superior achievement in scholastic broadcasting.

Wired news is part of the Nease Communications Academy Television Production program. 165 students work on the newscasts each week, under the direction of Jaime Combs, a 5th-year instructor at Nease, and a Nease alumnus, who discovered her passion for TV Production during her high school career.
