WDDE-TV Students see television history
October 24, 2013By Jodi Pelini of WDDE-TV
On Oct. 23, 2013, students from Eisenhower's TV Production and Broadcast News classes took a field trip downtown to see the Museum of Broadcast Communication located at 600 N. State Street. While there, the students got the chance to see first-hand some artifacts from television history, such as the camera used to film the Kennedy-Nixon debate and original costumes from the Bozo show.
After a quick lunch at the Rock N Roll McDonalds, students then watched a live session of ESPN Radio's afternoon show with Tom Waddle. In addition, the students got to see the set of the ABC7 Chicago newscasts (through the window).
Overall, it was a wonderful learning experience for our TV Students--a terrific opportunity to see the past, while making plans for their bright future in TV Production!
