The Ghetto Talks Team visits New York 1!
Kristen spoke about how she never uses the word ghetto and cautioned others not to use it. She also offered insightful advice on what people that face hardship need to do to get somewhere in life. She held countless jobs bartending and waitressing before becoming a journalist, for example. “It doesn’t matter where you start, it’s where you end up that matters,” she said.
After interviewing her for a couple of minutes, we followed Kristen on a tour of the studio. We got to see the different pieces that go into making a newscast. From the set to the control and make up rooms, we saw how the anchors and other reporters ready themselves for their shoots. We experienced first-hand the steps that go into making a television broadcast. We also got to toy around with being on set: we sat in the very chairs that the anchors sit in to do the news!
After the tour, we shot some extra b-roll and called it a day. It was an extremely early start, but we got some insightful responses from Kristen. Being in New York 1 Studiosprovided a fun experience that we won’t soon forget!
