ACWORTH, GA -- School news has come a long way from the intercom annoucements many of us grew up with.
Every morning while the other students are heading to homeroom, the news teams at Ford Elementary and Durham Middle School are proofing their scripts, reading the prompter, and getting the studios ready for the morning show at their schools.
"I have to be here before 7:30 a.m. because I have to type all the stuff, so I have to go right when I get to school after the bus," said Lauren Nixon, who is the script manager for the show at Ford Elementary School.
"When the bell rings for announcements, we just go on air," said Durham Middle student Jen Andrus.
They go on air and onto the screens of every classroom in their schools. From morning anchors, to camera operators, all the students play roles.
Ford Elementary has even added a weather girl to their news, complete with a sky view.
