Emma Wilson Students visit Action News Now

Students studying weather visited the Action News Now Television studios in Chico Tuesday to see Weatherman Cort Klopping and Anchorwoman Linda Watkins-Bennett in action, on the News at Noon.

Teacher Stayce York brought her 5th grade students in to see how we compile weather information and deliver it live on the airwaves.

And what visit would be complete without a brief guest appearance? The kids were thrilled to get a chance to wave and say "Hi" to their family and friends on live television, at the end of the weather segment.

Two more classes of Emma Wilson 5th graders will visit the news set on Wednesday and Thursday.

Action News Now regularly hosts field trips from visiting schools studying subjects like weather, current events, and broadcasting. The television station also provides training for student interns from Butte Community College and CSU, Chico. And our station staff also participates in local career day programs.
