Arkansas High School’s Razorback TV has been named one of seven regional winners for Best Monthly News Show by the Student Television Network (STN).
As winners of the southwest region, Razorback TV beat out other schools from Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. The national winner will be announced at the STN convention in Seattle in March.
This is the second major honor within this school year for the student led newscast. In October, Razorback TV News received first place honors for Best Complete Show by the Ozark Media Arts Festival in Springdale, Arkansas.
Through the Razorback TV broadcast journalism program, students are able to gain hands-on experience and learn the skills needed to jump start a career in broadcast television and mobile production. Razorback TV is responsible for producing On Our Campus and Razorback TV News, which focus on campus and community news and events. The Razorback TV classroom is fully equipped with two audio production booths, a Mac lab, and television studio with NewTek’s latest complete production system, the TC1.
