Tailgate show wins awards

October 29, 2003

Thomasville - The Mass Media program at Thomas County Central High School has been producing a yellow Jacket tailgate show for years. It's a radio program produced entirely by students that plays on the radio before each football game.

Every year they've been on air, they've won an award from the Georgia Scholastic Press Association. Teacher Randy Young says, "As far as our program's concerned, with the broadcast and TV production department, it's been the most successful thing we've done."

Student Kendall Meadows says she learns something new every time she does an interview. "I like helping with it, because you don't have to be on camera or anything, and it's just your voice," she says. "You get to do an interview with somebody you don't know, you get to find something about them that you don't know."

The tailgate show is on 2 hours before every game, and can be heard on 106.3, WTUF.
