Field Trips

Summer Journalism Workshop for High School Students

One of the exciting aspects of the summer workshops are the field trips to major news operations such as ABC-TV, CNBC, the NY Giants, and the NJ Jackals baseball team.

These trips provide students with an up-close look at real working newsrooms, recording studios, and control rooms. They also include personal meetings with top news executives, on-air personalities, and some of our recent graduates working successfully in the industry.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic this year the program will not include field trips but will bring in industry professionals into the program virtually.
