The GM Student Corp from Detroit’s Central High recently took a tour of WXYZ/WMYD-TV (Detroit) and received good advice about how today’s broadcast industry works. Several on-air and behind-the-scenes employees took time out of their busy schedules to answer excellent questions from the students. The students also gave the television station staff valuable insight into how young people today consume their news and information.
The students are mentored in a summer program run by retired General Motors employees. They visit various workplaces and participate in community beautification projects.
