An overview of what we do.
Maggie: Hey everyone and welcome to the Channel One News studios in New York City. I'm Maggie Rulli here to tell you a little bit about what we do.
For more than 23 years Channel One has been bringing the latest news from around the world to nearly five million young people across the country. And while I don't what to brag, we have won quite a few awards in that time. Let's just say, it's more than three hundred. And that includes two George Foster Peabody Awards for excellence in journalism.
And our team of young digital journalists do it all from researching to interviewing to shooting and editing. We travel around the country and around the world to cover stories that are important to young people with a young perspective.
See, when Channel One reports from Afghanistan or Myanmar or closer to home, like Boston, we do things a little differently. We actually talk to young people, something the other news networks don't usually do, because we know that young people are not only interested in what's going on in the world, but have the power to make a difference.
That's why we also feature your comments, opinions, and videos on our show and website. It's also why you can find Channel One News everywhere you are, whether it's in the classroom, on the web at channelone.com, on your phone or tablet, on Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, Instagram, you name it! Not a day goes by when we're not interacting with our audience.
And let's not forget the teachers, who not only help drive the conversation, but share real world events that provide context for our daily lives in this complex and connected world. We can help. Each day our newscast aligns with Common Core standards and we provide additional teaching resources, like discussion guides, every day on our website channelone.com.
I really do have the coolest job, bringing the most important stories in the world to the most important people in our world. Alight, now I have to get back to all that important work, but on behalf of everyone here at Channel One News, thanks for being a part of the show and hey, keep watching.
