The broadcast programs play throughout the buildings. Some examples of the broadcasts include: morning announcements, special weekly news shows, and special event features.

Students participate in the entire broadcasting process, from script writing, presenting and technical behind the scenes details.

Liverpool High School Broadcasting Class
Liverpool High School's Technology Education Department provides opportunities for students within its Broadcasting Technology course.

The Broadcasting Technology course explores the evolution of the television industry, both on-air and behind the scenes. Students have an opportunity to discuss and create quality media productions, such as news and sports broadcasts.

To accomplish this, the course has a hands-on approach, providing both in front of and behind the scenes camera experiences. The technical concepts covered include camera operation, picture composition, production outlines, lighting, sound engineering, remote shooting, directing, anchoring, videography, and HDV/DVD authoring.

Students also explore a variety of broadcasting careers, such as on-air reporting, sportscasting, weathercasting, investigative reporting, and program hosting.

Students who successfully master the content of this course are eligible to help run the high school’s new TV channel “Liverpool Live” for the year. Morning announcements and school events are some of the types of broadcast productions.
