GREAT FALLS — High school students from Power visited KRTV on Tuesday to learn about the news business.
"I teach a yearbook class,” Power Schools teacher Lauren Vick said. After finishing up the school yearbook, her class turned its attention to the media industry, including KRTV.
"We're really concentrating on media and what careers in media look like, so we've toured newspapers and looked at radio and just want to give them another opportunity through TV to explore that as a career option,” Vick said.
"Media comes in many different shapes and sizes,” said Power senior Herbert Carlsson.
For Carlsson, the wide range of media is what stuck out to him the most. "The similarities and the differences are just kind of cool,” Carlsson said.
He says he also likes the production side of the industry.
"Actually, it was the production side. The guy-in-the-chair kind of thing where they've got all the buttons,” said Carlsson.
Vick noted, "We live in Power, Montana. It's tiny. There's no news, breaking news, going on so I just feel like it's really important that we just reach out to as many options as possible.”
