Although career day at Holy Family Catholic School in Shorewood isn’t scheduled until April 16, the fourth grade class already enjoyed a unique opportunity to learn about the career of school dad and Holy Family alum, Brian Bertino, on a recent visit to his workplace.
The class traveled to Chicago’s NBC Channel 5 Studios where Betino works as the technical director for the morning news.
While split into small groups, the students rotated between the control room, the weather office, and the Channel 5 news studio.
The students particularly enjoyed viewing themselves on TV as a result of individual opportunities to experience the ‘green screen.’
NBC 5 Meteorologist Andy Avalos described how he analyzes a variety of information to help prepare an accurate forecast.
Keep an eye out in newsrooms across the country in the not so distant future to see if this trip impacted Holy Family fourth grade’s imminent career goals!
