The WHS TV production classes toured the WJHG studio in Panama City Beach today. We learned a lot about what goes on behind the scenes and met many experienced staff members that detailed what goes into a professional news broadcast. We even got a chance to view and be a part of their live 11:00 show (see link below). Thank you to everyone at WJHG for making this an unforgettable experience for our students.
