Senn TV

Senn TV is one of the bright spots of the Chicago Public Schools highlighted as part of the #notaprison hashtag campaign - a response to Gov. Bruce Rauner saying some Chicago public schools were "almost crumbling prisons."

"Senn High School will be launching a new TV news show this month where Journalism students will work every day to inform their peers about events in and outside the school," Senn sophomore Maricela Machuca reports for the Senn Times.

"The idea came from Michael Cullinane, Senn's lead journalism teacher, and Mary Beck the school's principal.

"TVs will be set up in the cafeteria that will display the show, and it will replace the morning announcements the last 7-8 mins of first period. The students will also be airing a new episode daily. The equipment was funded by Loyola's grant from the McCormick Foundation. The organization grants money to journalism programs all around Chicago at different high schools.

"Cullinane wants to make Senn TV a show where everyone can feel comfortable and informed. He also wants to bring all of these stories to life, as engaging the students is essential to him."

Here are the first two episodes:

Episode 1.1, featuring:

International Fest
ACT Exam
Question of the Day (Student Slang)
A Message from Principal Beck (Funding Crisis)
The Second Installment of "Coming Out"
and Some Bloopers
