On Wednesday, April 13, 2011, nine juniors and seniors representing Savannah Chatham Public High Schools throughout the district attended a Communications Explorer Post event at WJCLWTGS TV Studios to receive an introduction to careers in television.

Hosted by Meteorologist, Jonathan Myers, this exciting event included career presentations by Deidre Johnson, news reporter, Frank Sulkowski, sports reporter, Nick Dolanar, promotions department and Jennifer Burns, advertising account executive.

In addition, Jonathan Myers gave students the opportunity to practice reporting the news and weather. Tyler Meuse, a junior at H.V. Jenkins High School had this to say about the experience, “I really liked reading from the news teleprompter and touring the control room. “Shirley M. Headen, a senior at H.V. Jenkins High School said, “I enjoyed meeting the television editors, reporters and producers because they gave me insight on what I want to do in my future career.”
