Right before COVID-19 shut everything down, Bobby and I had the opportunity to spend the day with the Radio/TV Broadcasting/Communications (RTV) students at Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center. We were there to share our knowledge of radio broadcasting, but I can tell you that these students are learning a lot more than we ever did. Not only are they being prepped for broadcasting, but the students are also learning the importance of digital content and how it ties into everything that we do.

Okay, technically, I didn't take any special classes to learn about broadcasting. I did attempt to sign up for the Television class during my time at Princeton Community High School, but every time I stopped by the classroom, no one was there. Evidently, the teacher had broken his leg or something, so I didn't get in the class. Like most things in my life - It was a whole thing!

JoBeth Bootz is the instructor for the RTV students and runs the radio station WPSR 90.7. She does an amazing job with the students, and I love that she lets them create their own radio shows.
