"Highlights in Review" Radio Show 2016-2017
Radio Show started in 1968 as the "Preston-Fountain High School Highlights in Review Show." It was started because community members requested that students start some type of news program so the community would know what was happening at the high school.
Now featuring all the events from Fillmore Central High School comprised of Preston, Fountain, and Harmony, MN, the "Highlights in Review" radio show is in its 49th season.
It was originally advised by Mr. Robert O'Reilly every year until his retirement in 1998, when Ms. Gerri Nielsen took on the challenge.
Students in Radio Show learn a little bit about reporting the news, speaking in front of a listening audience, balancing busy schedules, and finding information about the events happening at the high school. The bonuses are having a great time with friends, eating occasional tasty snacks, and competing for a trophy at the end of the year!
We're very proud of our alumni cast members who participated in radio in college and made broadcasting/journalism part of their careers:
2002 grad Emily Torgrimson
2005 grad Gabe Erickson
2008 grad Paula Skaggs
Every year there have been many students participating, always seniors. This year, there are 12 seniors.
The show can be heard every Saturday morning right before "Coaches' Corner." It starts at 9:30 A.M. on KFIL 1060 AM. REMEMBER TO TUNE IN THIS SATURDAY!
We look forward to hearing your feedback about our weekly show! Thanks for listening!
