ACTS Students Get Tour of Weather Center

On January 15, 2009, a group of students from ACTS came to the station to get a closer look of what goes on inside a TV studio. While they were here, we talked about how it takes lots of teamwork among many different people for the final product to make it to the airwaves! We ended our tour in the TV studio where we talked about all of the different tools that a meteorologist can use to predict the weather and make a forecast. Then we looked at some real "Hollywood magic" and talked about how a green screen brings you weather images at home on TV. We all took a big group picture at the anchor desk and the photo was shown on CBS19 News at 5 later that night!
