For this semester, my daughter is taking the ‘Radio and Broadcast Journalism Focus Program’ in another school. This program hosts an FM radio station that is located inside the school, and is run by high school students. She is learning how to run an actual radio station, and how to be an on-air host, producer, editor, reporter, news reader and interviewer.
Isn’t this just the most exciting course?
Yesterday evening we went to parent-teacher night at my daughter’s school, and got to see her in action in ‘the studio’ as she broadcasted live in the city. She managed to stay cool as her mother snapped photo after photo and grinned from ear to ear. Can you say proud mama?

After that, we met with her teacher and he raved about her. Told us she has leadership qualities, and that her quiet and calm strength are going to take her far in life. That she is fantastic with her peers. Well respected. Hard working. Focused. An exceptional student. And on and on. I think I floated out of his office when our meeting was over. I’m just so proud of her.
Well, let’s end the week with something fun. My husband and I laugh like little kids when we think of radio broadcasting because it always brings to mind WKRP, a comedy television series that ran in the late 70s and early 80s. Do any of you remember it? GAWD...was it ever funny. Here’s a clip to tickle your funny bone.
Have a wonderful weekend!
