This month, the Fall 2017 1-Year students got an exclusive “behind the scenes” look at NBC News. It was all made possible by NBC News military affairs contributor Col. Jack Jacobs, who is also Chair of the NYFA Veteran’s Advancement program.
While visiting NBC News, the students had the opportunity to meet MSNBC anchor Joy Reid.
Then, they visited the set of her program “AM Joy,” while the show was in progress.
Since prime time anchor Lester Holt was off, the NYFA students decided to help out as “substitute anchors” on the set of the “NBC Nightly News.”
…and made a quick visit to make-up.
In fact, they even found out about some of the jokes on that night’s show, 10 hours before air time!
These tours are available only to students in the NYFA Broadcast Journalism 1-Year Conservatory program. This group seems to have had fun…
