GobTV’s New Website to Showcase Student News

The Harrison School District today unveiled a new website for the GobTV journalism program at Harrison High School, providing a one-stop destination to showcase the award-winning work of its students.

 

Located at harrisongoblins.org/gobtv, the site features videos, news stories, photographs and additional content created by student journalists, who are producing more stories about the Harrison Public Schools than ever before. The students’ videos, photos and live broadcasts were previously hosted separately, but the new web address provides one central location for the community to access all three.

 

GobTV students recently premiered a biweekly newsmagazine show, H-Town Rundown, in which reporters present a variety of features about students, teachers, activities and events at all six Harrison campuses. They also produce daily announcements for Harrison High School, live broadcasts of select Goblins sporting events, athletic highlight reels and recurring news features for local media outlets.

 

The new harrisongoblins.org/gobtv provides an easy-to-remember address from which the community can access the different branches of GobTV’s work. It does not replace GobTV’s existing YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or Zenfolio (photography) accounts, which will remain active and continue to publish content.

 

The site introduces new features as well. Visitors are encouraged to click or tap on the “Submit A News Tip” section and fill out a web form to let the students know about potential news stories or events for which coverage is sought.
