Everyday Titan Student News

  • Everyday Titan is a daily announcement/news program produced by the Alexandria City High School Advanced TV Production students. The program is a venue to provide the A.C.H.S. family (staff and students), the Alexandria community, with information regarding future events, reports on events that have recently taken place, and news that may be of interest. 

    Everyday Titan, which is also the class's regular transfer task, provides students the opportunity for students to use the creative, technical, and organizational skills they learn in the TV Production class.

    The four- to ten-minute show runs every school day, Monday through Friday, except on days of general testing: SOL, PSAT, SAT, etc.; student holidays; school closures that include days off and 2-hour delays; and other days that disallow students from recording the show.

    The show may also be viewed daily on visit ACPS-TV starting after lunch of the day it was recorded, or in special circumstances, when the station manager is able to upload the program to YouTube.

    Everyday Titan is produced by the TV/Media Production's second-year class: the DE TV/Media Production II class. On any given day, 13 students actively participate in the studio portion of the daily show. The remaining students are tasked to create video segments for the show. 

    The show runs on a rotation basis: the above-the-line jobs (producers, director, technical director, hosts) stay in their jobs for six weeks; the below-the-line jobs (audio director, graphics creator/operator, assistant director, teleprompter operator, floor director, camera people, segment producers) stay in their jobs for 3 weeks. By the end of the school year, each student masters at least 9 of the 11 jobs needed to run a television studio.
