Newsroom

WJMK's intern based news team on "Newsroom."

An award-winning production (WBA, 2010) originally from the mind of Jonathon Kelley, Newsroom is an improvised show set in a small-market television news station.  After the IBC (International Broadcasting Corporation) network requires all affiliates to produce an evening newscast, the tiny and nearly bankrupt station WJMK-TV out of Jefferson Falls, WI is left with no option but to assign all positions to college interns.  Five episodes were produced by Kelley in fall, 2009, and an additional four were added in spring, 2010, co-produced by Kelley and Jon Sorensen.  Reruns of Newsroom now make up part of UWW-TV’s comedy block.
