Blazer TV Newscasters Wall Of Fame 
Behind The Scenes
Our news broadcast is filmed through Zoom with a Logitech webcam and a USB dual microphone.  We use a green screen to project virtual backgrounds, including our news studio.  The green screen also helps overlay graphics such as names, logos and pictures.  Our newscasters read a transcript from a teleprompter that is carefully prepared during pre production.  Then, post production is completed through a video editing software called "Adobe Premiere Pro."  This is how we add music, sound effects, transitions, and commercials each day.  Our station's jingle, "Good Morning Blazers," was recorded through an audio recording program called "Logic Pro 8."  The song was written by our Music teacher Ms. Bradshaw and produced by Mrs. Clay, Mrs. Outcault, Mr. Brown and Mr. Ahrens.  Collectively, these talented staff members are known as the "School Of Rock Band."
