WPNN, our Pelican TV station, broadcasts from Plumb Elementary's in-house TV studio in the Library. All of the technicians, on-camera personalities, and most of the behind-the-scenes people are students! Students in good academic standing are encouraged to apply for positions on this team before their fifth grade year. Our sponsor, Mrs. Milhan, is always on hand to help us learn how to produce the show and smooth out the rough spots. WPNN produces the morning show, which includes the Pledge to the Flag, announcements, and sometimes a word from our Principal or even special guests!
Over the 2014 Summer, the PTA successfully purchased a NEW $5,000.00+ Tricaster for the WPNN production team! The old one did it's duty, but the students were limited in what they could produce by using the old software and machinery. The new equipment has been installed, and is used every day by our students! They are enjoying using the green screen while the Tricaster produces some great new professional looking backgrounds for our newscasters to use. Mr. Joyce has been volunteering almost every day to help them get up to speed on the new equipment, while Mrs. Milhan encourages everyone to research their stories, write their scripts, and be prepared and on-time for production!
If you have any announcements you would like for us to air, feel free to let us know. Please send your script for the announcement to our Production Crew at least three school days in advance of air time.
