KRWG Public Media presents student documentary


This week, KRWG-TV’s Newsmakers will broadcast a documentary about education during the pandemic. The documentary was produced by Noah Raess of Las Cruces.  The recent Centennial High School graduate will attend New Mexico State University this fall as a Journalism major.

The program, which also includes an interview with Raess, will be broadcast at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 1, 5 p.m. Saturday, July 3 and 11 a.m. Sunday, July 4.  It is available on-demand at www.krwg.org/post/newsmakers-1319-covid-19-student-perspective.

For the documentary, Raess interviewed a variety of students from area schools who discussed remote learning, the loss of activities during the pandemic, and their hopes for the future.

Raess also completed all of the video production and editing. 

“I’ve learned so much from this project,” said Raess. “I was a very slow editor at the beginning. Towards the end, I started to get a lot better … Before this documentary, I never did an interview. So, conducting the first interviews, I learned a lot.”

KRWG Public Media regularly offers internships to high school and college students.

“Educating the journalists of the future is a key priority for KRWG Public Media,” said KRWG Director of Content Fred Martino, Ph.D. “Students help provide our viewers with an important perspective and we value the opportunity to give them professional skills while they are still in school.”
