CONNERSVILLE, IN (FOX19) -
You've probably noticed that FOX19 News is looking a little different lately. We're temporarily broadcasting from our newsroom while a brand new set is constructed. The old set was dismantled a few weeks ago, but instead of just throwing it in the dumpster, a part of it was donated to a deserving school.
FOX19's Weather Center Set, the area where the Meteorologists tracked the forecast, was donated to Connersville High School's TV Media Class. The class broadcasts the school's TV News and it's the longest running high school news program in the nation, according to principal Randal Judd.
Chief Meteorologist Steve Horstmeyer on Monday visited the class, where he got to answer questions from the students and even help them cut the ribbon to debut the set.
"The attitude change the day they walked in and saw this was amazing," said Joe Glowacki, the TV Media teacher.
Glowacki instructs his students on all aspects of broadcasting, such as being on camera, editing, camera work and writing. The students acting more professional is only one of the positive changes he says have happened since the sets arrival.
"It's bringing more attention to a program some didn't even know we had… The whole community is excited, anyone who comes in just can't believe we have this set," said Connersville Principal Randal Judd. Judd and Glowacki agree that they'll use the set for years to come.
