Caroline Welch welcomes the students
WPVI-TV Studios
April 1, 2006

WPVI's Vice-President of Programming welcomed the students to Channel 6 and the 5th annual Broadcast Pioneers' Symposium for college students. Standing against the wall is our Chairman of the Board, Bill "Wee Willie" Webber, himself, a former Channel 6 announcer.

After a tour of the "Action News" newsroom, our "guide" through the facilities, Jessica Borg (an Action News Anchor) took us into the new news studio.

Everyone who wanted a turn sitting at the Action News anchor desk received a turn. They also got to read part of the script from the teleprompter from that morning's news show.
