Cleveland High School broadcast team wins national award

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, TN (WRCB) -

Cleveland High Schools' broadcast team has won "Best Daily Newscast in the Nation" from the Student Television Network.  It is the first time the school has won the national honor.  The announcement was made Saturday in Atlanta.

Jon Souders, a graduate of Cleveland High has been at the helm of his alma mater’s broadcasting program for nine years.  He compares it to a great sports team.  He loses top talent to graduation each year, but always seems to re-stock with enthusiastic new students.

Students gets a chance to perform every duty on the team, from the control room to on-camera duties.  This isn’t just lunch menus and sports schedules.  These students do journalism on their daily "CHS Live" program, and they take it seriously.

At first, the news and production team at Cleveland High focused only on their daily newscasts.  But in recent years, they’ve expanded to live coverage of numerous school functions and sporting events, at home and on the road.

Winning a national honor against larger, better equipped schools creates pride at Cleveland High, and justifies the faith and investment school officials and the community have placed in the program.  How do you top a championship?  For the CHS Live team, it means you just keep getting better.
