For more than a decade, we’ve invited high school student-athletes to our photo studios for preseason portraits that run in print and online.This fall, we asked some of the 300-plus kids to try their hand — and voice – at recording radio spots, which we’ll roll out later this week on WDWS 1400-AM.
More than 70 boys and girls worked alongside N-G Media engineer Ed Bond to produce 10-second promotions for local programming, from “Penny For Your Thoughts” to “ServPro Prep Football Confidential.” They sounded terrific.
“It was fun to work with the high schoolers,” Bond said. “Each student gets their name, school and sport on the air. Almost everyone wanted to give it a try.”
— On Twitter, we’ll soon unveil GIFs produced during our Faces of the Fall photo shoot. Again, the kids were both cooperative and imaginative in their approach.
— At news-gazette.com, we’ll post a video of how the Faces of the Fall experience played out, from the selfie station to the green screen.
Here’s what was trending at our website, which in a seven-day period ending Sunday saw 1,145,121 pageviews:
