In the 56th annual Newstudies program from Audacy station KWY Newsradio, 70 high school students in the Philadelphia area received hands-on training in broadcast journalism. The program culminated with the students producing their own news reports, which were broadcast on the station. KYW Assistant Brand Manager and Director of Podcasts Tom Rickert said, “There’s no other program that gives students an opportunity to learn from top professionals in news and sports media at one of the best broadcasting facilities in the country. And five decades in, we’re reuniting with parents who graduated from Newstudies when they were in high school, who are now watching their teenagers graduate from the same program. We hope to keep investing in the young people of Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley for generations to come, and we’re thrilled to be able to work with our partners at the Klein College of Media and Communication to make this happen.”
