The staff members of the Raider Network have tapped into the talent of the student body. The Raider Network trailer gleamed with potential once again this year, as 12 Upper School students of the sports broadcasting class practiced their newly acquired skills hands-on during the first JV game of the season against Simpson Academy, which was the first student-run broadcast of the season. Students in the class have learned important skills, including live event production, graphic design, audio control, and technical directing, along with abstract life skills, such as critical thinking and collaboration.
The Raider Network’s main purpose is to allow students to find their niche in the Raider community, all while giving the students credibility and experience in broadcasting. The Raider Network is able to produce events that require up to 10 cameras, multiple channels of replay, 32 channels of audio, and high-definition graphics packages, giving students the opportunity to learn the use of live production equipment. This passionate team of broadcasters will embrace three more student-led broadcasts to finish out the season, covering the games against MRA, PCS, and Parklane.
