    Sharks Took Over Halftime

    By Brady Lorch During halftime at the Nease vs. Ponte Vedra game on the 24th of August at Nease High School, members of the Nease band and color guard were disappointed when they couldn’t perform their full show at this important rivalry game.

    Wired Takes a Win (or Three) at STN by Denise Uy

    During the last week of March, a select group of thirteen students received the opportunity to represent Nease’s student broadcast program Wired at the Student Television Network Convention in Anaheim, California. The students received several awards at the convention: Regional Southeast Broadcast Excellence, First Honorable Mention for the anchor team (or 4th place) and First Place for Crazy 8s. The project submitted for the Broadcast Excellence awardwas completed in November of 2016, as a preconference competition.

    Fake News By Fara Supre and Dasha Charapko

    Fake news. These two words are paradoxical in nature, considering that Merriam Webster Dictionary defines journalism as “writing characterized by a direct presentation of facts or description of events without an attempt at interpretation.” In other words, a proper journalist presents facts in a non-biased way — News!
