OSWEGO, NY – Recently, students from SUNY Oswego’s WTOP10 visited Oswego High School and WBUC to conduct two mini workshops.
The goal of the visit was to assist local high school students in their TV production classes and broadcasts, according to Jamie Sykut, Oswego High School technology teacher.
SUNY Oswego students Justin Dobrow, Christy Somers, Olivia Ugino, Ian Dembling, Dan Eye, Aubrey Mulvey, James Walters, Mae Roberts, Catherine Danielewicz, and Kara Vormwald visited Sykut and Kim Nelson’s TV production classes providing tips and pointers regarding furthering their broadcasting education.
The day was about more than TV production.
The SUNY Oswego broadcasting majors discussed the importance of public speaking, organization and communication regardless of career path.
Current WTOP GM, Somer, and incoming GM, Dobrow, have been working with Sykut and Nelson throughout this school year.
Earlier this year, WTOP donated its old studio set to Oswego High School for WBUC students to use.
Both parties are excited to continue and grow the collaboration next year, Sykut said.
