Digital media students got hands-on training last week when the group of Fairfield seventh and eighth graders toured the WFAA studios and Southern Methodist University. While visiting the SMU broadcasting class, students enjoyed learning how to man the cameras, anchoring on-air with one class, and using the vocal training lab with Pam Hackett, who is a broadcast executive-in-residence at SMU.

“My favorite part was anchoring at SMU and working in the vocal lab,” said seventh grader Avery Thaler.

The students traveled from the college to WFAA studios where they met longtime anchor John McCaa. WFAA was the first studio to broadcast the news of John F. Kennedy’s assassination on Nov. 22, 1963 in Dallas.

DALLAS – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport seized over 65 pounds of liquid methamphetamine with an estimated value of $297,000, Jan. 2. The narcotic was shipped from China to Memphis, Tenn. and destined for Fort Worth. “Intercepting illegal drugs from entering our country is a top priority for CBP,” said Dallas Area Port Director Cleatus P. Hunt, Jr. “CBP officers targeted and seized a large amount of dangerous narcotics, preventing those drugs from ending up in the hands of our community.” Two boxes of unlabeled bottles were shipped and manifested as “printing ink” with a declared value of $90.
