Life @ Webb

The W.O.W Network

The Webb School experience embodies more than outstanding academics. Our students actively participate and take on leadership roles in extracurricular activities, community service, athletics, the arts, international programs and more.

The W.O.W. Network, also known as Webb on the Web, includes two clubs (Sports Broadcasting & Broadcast Journalism) for both Middle and Upper School students. These clubs are among the most popular with students and there is a place for everyone to find their interest in the world of broadcasting.

Goals of the Program

Students will experience all facets of a studio broadcast and components of broadcast journalism, ranging from:
  • Pre-production: script writing, interview preparation, voice technique and projection, preparing equipment
  • Production: on-site and studio interviews, studio experience as anchors and with guests, producers, and technical engineers.
  • Post-production: video editing, voice-sound overlays, graphics
  • Technical aspects with all stages of production that include lighting, sound, microphones, video effects, cameras, video switching, green/blue screen Chromakey technology, and Teleprompters.

New Broadcast Studio

The new Webb on the Web Broadcast Studio in the Haslam Center includes two rooms: a tech room that contains servers, computers, sound equipment, and graphics technology for broadcasts and editing. The adjacent studio contains two television production cameras Teleprompters and also two “blue-screen” walls, which enables images and videos to be projected behind the broadcasters.
