        UNION TOWNSHIP — A broadcasting class at Glen Este Middle School has finished tops in the nation for a newscast it produced in January.

        More than 150 schools competed in the event, sponsored by Los Angeles-based Channel One News. The “Best Newscast” award was announced in June.

        “This school put a lot of resources in their broadcast, but resources are not enough — they put a lot of care into the show,” said Channel One executive producer Jim Morris.

        Glen Este Middle School is in the West Clermont Local School District. Channel One News is a daily 10-minute newscast beamed via satellite during the school year to more than 8 million viewers in 12,000 schools nationwide.

  Glen Este Middle School's WGEM reporters are: Kyle Baughman, Jackie Burch, Neil Burch, Claire Brown, Kim Cieslewicz, Sadie Hoffard, Nikki Reddick, Eric Rothman, Scott Smith, Samantha Strong, Jay Sutter and Tyler Von Moll. View the award-winning newscast at
        “We cover a lot of break ing national and international news and a lot of teen issues,” Mr. Morris said.

        Since its first broadcast in 1990, Channel One News has garnered more than 150 news and educational programming honors.

        Channel One in turn likes to recognize schools that deliver strong broadcasting programs.

        Glen Este Middle School's recent award was not the first it received from Channel One, but the loftiest, said class instructor Bob Brosmer.

        In the past six years, Mr. Brosmer's extracurricular video production class has won several other “Channel One” awards. Two were “Best Story” awards for reports on the accidental deaths of two students and another classmate's battle against cancer.

        “Our news is basically what's going on in the school, plus anything going on in the community related to the kids,” Mr. Brosmer said.

        Glen Este Middle School's winning newscast included segments on the weather, school lunch, school sports, test-taking tips and the Eastgate Krispy Kreme shop's “Doughnuts for "A's” program.
