If little Suzy grows up to be a reporter some day, KVLY-TV in Fargo, N.D., might be the reason why. Each year, hundreds of kids come to the stationís "Students Do the News" event, where they have the opportunity to write their own 30-second scripts and present them on camera with one of the KVLY anchors. The fourth- through ninth-graders leave with a tape of their performance, and each video is posted on the stationís Web site so it can be easily shared with relatives and friends across the country. The station runs promotional spots inviting children, parents and teachers to be a part of the event every October. The stationís sports, weather and news personalities are all in attendance, and news coverage of the event includes highlights of potential future broadcasters.
