Students tapped to filmTwo local high school juniors have been tapped by Mi Community Media to join a team filming Romeo High School football games on WBRW-TV6, according to Adam Brady, broadcast production manager.

Dan Bartolotta of Romeo and Chris Zehnpfennig of Washington will be on the sidelines at home games filming their fellow students. Brady said the two have gained valuable experience in WBRW studios and on location that enable them to capture fast-paced action on the playing field.
Brady said that once the school year gets under way, he expects more of the nearly 100 students enrolled in inaugural Romeo High School video production classes to join the Bulldog broadcasting team as camera operators, editors and commentators. Students will be paired with broadcasting professionals to ensure they gain valuable training and guidance.
"This is a tremendous departure from previous years when professionals were the focal point of broadcast coverage," he said. "Giving students as large a role as possible is an important dimension to WBRW. It gives student broadcasters valuable experience that may translate to broadcasting jobs and careers. Best of all, parents, family members and friends can tune in to see these kids grow while they watch local athletes, either on Channel 6 or online at WBRWTV.com."
WBRW's broadcasting team will produce and air all home games. If the Bulldogs reach the playoffs, Brady said station management will seek permission from opponents to cover those away games as well.
Onscreen graphics for Romeo High School football games will have a new look as well, according to Brady. Scores, player names and stats are being redesigned to make them more readable and establish a distinctive personality for WBRW.
Mi Community Media manages WBRW TV as well as media/video production and editing training programs for residents in Washington and Bruce townships as well as the Village of Romeo.
