My final show as an Executive Producer for WVU News is officially complete. The past two weeks were filled with nothing but hard work toward our special edition show, Heroin and Opioids: When Addiction Hits Home. Most people had their story idea weeks in advance, making a smooth transition into the start of show preparations. People had ideas for creative stand-ups and SOT teases, and everyone showcased their talents in their packages.
Picking stories for the show was difficult this time around. All of the stories were important and were important to tell, and with this show being our group’s last, everyone has become great reporters that really know what they are doing. By the end of the day, we had five packages and two VO’s to put in the show. This is a lot of information for one of our newscasts, but I knew we could pull it off. From this point, I was ready to write the script.
