In order to create a weekly broadcast, Senior Kaden Roth and Kaitlin Reynolds collaborate together to anchor for the MWHS Wildcat news. The anchors prepare for the weekly broadcast and film. ‘The most rewarding part is knowing that I am creating a broadcast that will be enjoyed by my community,” Reynolds said. “Theres a lot of work that goes into each broadcast: writing a script, performing the segments and repeating if any issues arise.”
