KWTS Coasting in LA

NBS Nationals 2016.JPG

Welcome back to school or work everybody!!!! We hope you had a great Spring Break. To catch you up on what happened during the break, members of the KWTS staff traveled to Los Angeles, California to take part in the National Broadcasting Society’s National Convention in Burbank as most members of KWTS are also members of NBS. Our students had a chance to visit all parts of Los Angeles as some students went to the taping of “2 Broke Girls”, visited Disneyland, and watch the NBA team Los Angeles Lakers play the Sacramento Kings.

At the convention, the group had a chance to meet other NBS members from around the United States to network with them and to network with professionals in the broadcasting industry. There were several panels there that included people involved in freelance work, television, film, music, news, and sports. This was a chance for students to pick their brains on the best approach to the future when they graduate college and move on to the real world.

The convention also consisted in an award ceremony where West Texas A&M University’s chapter walked away with 12 student awards and one professional award. Here is the list of awards our NBS chapter and members of our station won there:

Professional Category: Audio Recording – Randy Ray – “Buckets of Rain”

Student Categories: Chapter of the Year

Model Chapter of the Year

Community Service – Honorable Mention

Student of the Year – Anthony Miller

Rookie of the Year – Tran Nguyen

Studio Live Performance – Cody Wesley, Tim Rivera – “WT Jazz Combo 1 Live Recording: Tall and Lanky”

Studio Live Performance – Malcolm Montgomery, David Dueñes – “One Sessions with Tennessee Tuckness”

Video Commercial – Hope Stokes “Around Amarillo in 30 Seconds”

Audio News Package – Allison Myers “WTAMU Athletic Training”

Play-by-Play Audio – Anthony Miller, Malcolm Montgomery, Payton Northrup – “WT Lady Buffs Basketball Game 2015”

Station Promo – Avery Taylor – “Top 21 Promo”

Audio Sports Package – Anthony Miller – “WT Softball”

We were honored by NBS rewarding us with so many awards, but it’s also a reflection of how hard students in our department work to achieve what we have worked at for a year. We have the hardest working students in the country and we proved it at the convention. This was a very successful Spring Break for us and we are looking forward to more success for our station and department.

Motivational Monday!! “So this message really spoke to me because of some circumstances that happened to me this past week. The quote is spot on in the lesson that I learned which is that you cannot change the past and you need to not let it determine your attitude for the day. When you cannot do what’s been done you just have to ‘keep going’.”- Skyler Hoodenpyle
Happy Easter!!
