Calling All Aspiring Journalists and TV Personalities
WLEC-TV are the call letters of the Lake Erie Council’s new video channel. We will produce news stories about our scouting units and camps, to inform our council and the greater community. Just like at our local TV stations, WLEC-TV will need in-studio and field reporters to deliver the news, so we are auditioning LEC Scouts to do the job. They can be Boy Scouts, Venturers, or Explorers over the age of 14, who can commit a few hours at our Unit Service Center studio twice a month, or on a central location in our Lake Erie Council.
To audition for the volunteer role of a WLEC-TV video news reporter, Lake Erie Council Scouts will need to arrive at our studio in their Class A uniform, and provide a news story script to read on a teleprompter. They can write a real scouting news story, or make one up – whatever best demonstrates their ability to present the news on camera. Or, if you want to be an on-the-scene reporter, be able to describe an event unscripted, as it’s happening, while holding a microphone and answer questions from the news anchor.
This is a great opportunity to be involved in Scouting, for those interested in reporting on camera as a journalist or vlogger. Reserve a spot to audition for an anchor opportunity below!
