Students qualify for the club through an essay and interview process. Once a member, students on the Edison Tiger News team are responsible for researching topics of interest to the Edison community. The students also gather their own data, conduct staff and student interviews, write their own scripts for the broadcast, and set up and break down the “studio” for filming. The Edison Tiger News Team hopes to teach students techniques in broadcast journalism, while broadening their exposure to a variety of potential careers for the future.
