Oh The Places You'll Go (In TV Production)

Producing is funny—it’s a paradoxical thing;

It’s personal, but team-oriented, depends what you bring.


Producing is fun, and it takes more than one!
Producing is fun, and it takes more than one!

It takes leaders and listeners,

Delegators and do-ers;

Some create and some write, 

And some breaking news-ers.


It’s student produced, 

So you’ll make mistakes.

But it is live TV,

You get only one take.


Come in prepared to cover all kinds of news:

Car chases (not sports), you don’t always choose.


The news of the day will dictate your show,

Own those local stories, and your broadcast will glow.


But please don’t be boring, 

Saying what CNN says;

But if you use their video,

Pick “Ten-Eighty-P” Res.


Producing is unique,

Don’t follow the crowd.

Be different, take risks,

Stand up and be LOUD!


Try things that scare you,

Try things that are new.

Live shots and live guests,

It’s all up to you.


Do your own show,

And do it with style.

Do a good job,

And you’ll make people smile.


Now go out and produce!

You’ve got all the tools.

Show all the big networks,

That campus news rules.
