“Fox Talks” is On The Air! What is “Fox Talks”? It’s the Fox Lane High School broadcasting club, created by students. Every segment on our YouTube channel was recorded, produced, and edited by students, with the help of our Technical Advisor, Mr. Richards, from BCSD-TV. Videos are posted every few weeks on our YouTube channel, “Fox Talks”, and can also be viewed on BCSD-TV. So far, “Fox Talks” has covered stories about clubs and sports, and interviews with faculty in the Bedford Central School District. All are welcome to the join our group; it’s never too late! Students are able to find their own stories to cover, learn how to use professional cameras and editing software, and see their own pieces aired online and on BCSD-TV (Optimum Ch. 18; FiOS Ch. 1982). Check out the website to learn more (www.bcsdny.org/foxtalks), come to a meeting every Friday after school in room A-112, or email Mr. Richards.
