Studio One Season 43 Season Summary Spring 2009


April 23, 2009 This semester was another great season for Studio One. Our teams worked very hard to create a quality show and a strong marketing campaign. I am very proud of our students. The University canceled classes for several days in March so students could support community flood fighting efforts. Studio One students helped with this effort but we did not cancel our weekly production. Everyone pulled together and put in a great effort to produce the show. Dedication was a strong theme this season! I am always proud when Studio One interns organize special events to help members of the community. Special efforts to organize a food drive for a local pantry demonstrated a strong commitment to people in the community. Successful organizations have an obligation to help members of the community. It was great to see our interns provide much needed support. Quality was also a theme this semester. It was another “content rich� season, filled with exceptional interviews, outstanding packages and detailed weather reports. Strong content does not happen by accident. It is the result of hard work, meeting deadlines, investigating every aspect of a story assignment and remaining positive when challenges arise. Bravo to everyone who produced strong content this season! Promoting and marketing Studio One is an important part of this project. Our marketing team developed new approaches to audience development and recruiting. It was great to see so many people in the audience during the live shows. We also had a strong pool of applicants for fall internships. I look forward to next semester. Studio One will reach an important milestone next fall. We will produce our 400th live television show. This milestone represents more than 540 awards, 21 years of strong content, and more than 500 student interns. I look forward to seeing many of our students return. To those who are graduating, you now become a member of our alumni family. I hope you keep in touch.

Sincerely,

Barry S. Brode Director of Television

Studio One Season 43 Season Summary Spring 2009


Project Principles There are four principles that students at Studio One learn while interning at the UND Television Center. These principles are professionalism, communication, teamwork, and quality. These aspects are important and can be implemented in students’ future profession.

Professionalism – Studio One strives to be a professional program. Professionalism means that the interns work, talk, act, and write as though we are experts in what they do. Practicing professionalism at Studio One is shown in many ways such as how interns dress and in how interns stage themselves in front of an audience. Students become well educated in all aspects of their position and learn how to use their skills to represent themselves and Studio One in a professional manner.

Communication – Good communication is essential is any type of work. At Studio One, students are encouraged to communicate in all areas of their work, while listening, speaking, brainstorming, observing, and evaluating assignments. Ideas are encouraged and honest feedback is expected. Communication is the key to understanding ideas and concepts. Clear communication and feedback on projects helps interns improve their work.

Teamwork – Teamwork is defined as working together to achieve a common goal. At Studio One the show is produced by a team each week. Every avenue of the Television Center is working hard to produce the live television show. Reporters, press release writers, to the production crew are all a small part of the larger team called, “Studio One.” Everyone holds small but strategic positions to produce a high quality program.

Quality – Interns at Studio One strive to make quality products. The previous three main philosophies of professionalism, communication, and teamwork help achieve this final objective. Because interns all strive to produce quality work, students learn how to achieve goals and surpass expectations.

The Studio One network By: Kayla Hoots College graduation can be a scary time. For most students, a degree means it’s time to be a “grown up” and find a “real job”. Perfecting your resume, filling out applications, and going to interviews may be daunting tasks. During these tough economic times, landing that first job can be even more difficult. But there is something you can do to make your job search a little less stressful. When there are many people applying for only a few positions, there needs to be something about yourself that distinguishes you from other candidates. One way to do this is through networking. The U.S. Bureau of Labor says that 70% of jobs are found through a personal network. Having a current employee or a good reference is an excellent way to get your foot in the door. Internships such as Studio One provide students with networking opportunities. Studio One alum Heidi Seyer says that networking has been a huge help in her quest to find jobs. Seyer interned with Studio One during her junior year at UND. At Studio One, she met intern Adam Brase at and used him as a contact to get an internship at Mayo Clinic. Then Brase got in touch with Studio One alum Joanna (Hjelmeland) Hartwell to help Seyer get a job with the city of Eden Prairie. At that job she continued networking and through a new contact, she got a job with a non-profit organization called Feed My Starving Children. She then went back to Mayo Clinic where she is currently working. Seyer definitely learned the importance of networking.

This picture was taken in Mozambique, Africa in summer 2007. Heidi traveled to Africa, Haiti, and Nicaragua while working for the non-profit organization Feed My Starving Children.

According to the U. S. Bureau of Labor, unemployment has risen 2.8% over the last year, but that’s not the only thing making the job market more competitive. Seyer has noticed that people have been waiting longer to retire. Her advice for current students is to make the most of your college experience. “Don’t be afraid to contact people, and use your connections to your benefit,” says Seyer. Networking may not eliminate all of the challenges in a job search, but it can make the search for employment after graduation a little easier.

2009 Marketing Presentation

Marketing Changes By: Robert Sweeney The marketing team has made many changes over that past 20 years at Studio One. In the first years of the program the “Advertising and Public Relations Team” was comprised of 3 members. This small team was responsible from promoting the show. In the mid 90’s the team’s title changed to “Marketing Staff.” This new title came with new responsibilities. The marketing team duties included developing a marketing plan, coordinating events and public relations. The marketing team now consists of 9 members. Marketing interns coordinate an audience for the show each week, write press releases and the team works to recruit interns for each coming semester. The Studio One marketing team presented their annual presentation February 10, 2009 with a twist. The theme for this year's marketing season was a "Ticket to the Show." As guests arrived at the scene, mocktails were served to set the stage for the Season 43 Marketing Presentation. This year, 90 percent of the team was new to the Studio One marketing team. With these new interns came new ideas. These ideas included unconventional promotion items such as, pizza cutters and weepuls (furry ball with eyes and feet). The marketing team also developed a contest to promote audience development through a competition between the UND Greek houses. The marketing presentation also focused on some goals for the coming semester which included sixty to seventy applicants and having an audience of at least twenty attending our live show each week. This year’s team has just finished the recruitment stage of the marketing plan. Interns generated posters, wrote press releases, attended classroom presentations and set up booths around campus. All of their events were focused on generating a pool of candidates for the upcoming fall semester of Studio One and giving people a ticket to the show.

Stephanie Flyger accepts the news director position at Studio One By: Allison Lampert The end of the 43rd season of Studio One is an important one for Stephanie Flyger. Although no stranger to Studio One, she is closing up her first year as a full time staff member. The road to the position of News Director was a journey full of experiences and opportunities. Stephanie went to the University of North Dakota from the fall of 2003 to the spring of 2008. She graduated from UND with a bachelor’s in Interdisciplinary Studies. Stephanie used this major to take classes in her three major areas of interest: art, technology, and communication. She was an ambitious student. Stephanie first came to Studio One as an intern in the fall of 2006. She enjoyed that first semester so much she came back three more semesters. In her four semesters as an intern, Stephanie worked as a news reporter, feature reporter and director. Stephanie realized Studio One was a good fit because she says she could gain knowledge and experience in all three of her areas of interest. “I really found my niche,” says Flyger. Through Studio One, Flyger became friends with intern Suzanne (Schmidt) Irwin. Because of these student’s experience with the Studio One program, Stephanie and Suzanne worked together to create UND’s student produced magazine, “Expression”. The duo asked two other students to help them develop this project. Studio One alum, Jessica Peterson (Season 40) came on board as the art director. One other graphic design student assisted this small team to design magazine layout, assign and edit stories, and distribute the publication in the Grand Forks area and on campus. This project created a great opportunity for Stephanie to practice her photography, editing and managing skills. Flyger knew how hard work during college would help her construct a basic framework of skills she could build on in her career after college. After graduation, Stephanie was recruited for a full time staff member at Studio One. She interviewed and was offered the position in July 2008. “I seemed to gravitate towards them [the staff] as an intern. I always thought they had the most amazing jobs,” she says. Knowing about the Studio One staff and the Studio One culture made the position a little less intimidating as a new staff member. Her previous experience at Studio One and in college in general allowed Stephanie to ease many of the anxieties that come with the first year at a new job. Stephanie was nervous about the switch from student to staff member at first. She is now the staff member in charge of some of her previous team members. In true Studio One fashion, the transition from student to staff was not a problem. “I had worked it up to be such a big deal when it really wasn’t an issue at all,” Stephanie says. Stephanie says there are many amazing aspects to working at Studio One. “I love seeing the interns really excel outside of Studio One using skills developed here,” explains Flyger. She is excited to be a part of student’s growth from their first semesters to graduation.

Suzanne (Schmidt) Irwin joins the Television Center staff as the director of marketing By: Kayla Hoots Studio One has come a long way from Robertson Hall in 1986. There have been many changes over the years including new buildings, new faces, and changing duties for many positions. There are two faces that are not new around the hallways, but are new on the payroll! Suzanne (Schmidt) Irwin signed on this fall as the director of marketing. She is a spring 2008 graduate of UND, and brings with her a constant smile, enthusiasm, a wide range of experience for such a recent grad. During college, Irwin collected a well rounded variety of experience. She interned with Studio One for 4 semesters. She also was a Public Relations assistant at the Grand Forks Public Information Center, took an internship designing graphics for Channels 3 & 17 in Grand Forks, and also helped publish UND’s student produced magazine. The student magazine was helpful to have on her resume because it showed that she could do something from beginning to end. Irwin raised university funding, assigned stories, and was a part of a small team that produced the magazine, Expression. After college, Irwin began to look for a job, and interviewed with BBI International. She brought many examples of her work from internships to the interview. She was hired to write for Biomass Magazine, but only worked there for about a month when she applied for an open position at the Television Center. The Television Center staff was also impressed with everything she brought to the table, and she was hired to fill the Director of Marketing position. “One thing Monte told me after I was offered a position at the Television Center was, ‘as interns, your interview never ends.’ That statement really impacted me because you never know who is watching your work and attitude,” says Irwin. The position of Director of Marketing has changed over the years, and Irwin definitely stays busy! She says the position still deals with many marketing aspects, but it is getting more technical. Throughout the school year, Suzanne leads the marketing team, edits video projects and updates the Studio One Web site. In the summer, she works with underwriters to produce and write advertisements. One of the things she loves the most is the great staff at Studio One. She says the staff is always professional, and everyone is willing to help each other. “I am thrilled to have this position at Studio One! The job is so much fun (Monte is my boss – how cool is that?), I get to work with amazing staff and students, and I get to learn something new every day,” says Irwin. Back to current e-news stories

This observatory is one of the longest running monitoring sites for data related to atmospheric change including rising CO2 levels. Legatt then returned to UND for her senior year and after graduation, she interned at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Langley, Virginia studying Texas Air Quality. “We also were able to see and hear about a lot of neat research that is ongoing at NASA, including a peek at the new lunar module that they hope to return to the moon by the end of the next decade. Pretty exciting stuff!” says Legatt. At the end of the summer, Legatt was offered a paid position as a graduate student at the International Arctic Research Center at University of Alaska Fairbanks. She is currently studying the effects of the North Atlantic oscillation on the arctic climate. This summer, Legatt gets to participate in another exciting opportunity. She will be traveling to Svalbard with the International Polar Year Polar Field School. Svalbard is a group of islands between the North Pole and the tip of Norway. “I was lucky enough to be selected to attend along with 20-30 other graduate students from around the world from different backgrounds,” says Legatt. The students will be studying environmental change in the Arctic and Antarctica. Legatt took advantage of everything she could while at UND, but she says Studio One was one of her best experiences. “It was through Studio One that I really came out of my shell, learned how to be professional, and I picked up a lot of public speaking skills along the way that have helped me tremendously throughout my career,” says Legatt. She says she loved the environment around Studio One, and says she learned a lot about communication, professionalism, public speaking, and teamwork that she was able to use on her career path since graduation.

Studio One plans a celebration for the 400th show By: Allison Lampert October 1, 2009 will be a big day for Studio One. On this day, the cast will produce Studio One’s 400th live show. The 400th show is significant because it represents the legacy of Studio One. It stands for more than 560 students who have participated in the program, 527 awards and 44 seasons. Many students have contributed exceptional work to the project through the years, from writing press releases to producing amazing packages and detailed guest segments. The 400th show is a time to reflect on the current students and alum that have kept this program moving forward. “We are excited about this milestone because it represents more than 21 years of students producing exceptional work,” says Barry Brode, Director of Television at the University of North Dakota.

Although interns have moved on in their careers, many alum say Studio One is still an important part of their lives. Many alum revisit Studio One or become underwriters. Numerous alumni thank Studio One for helping them be successful in their careers. One such alum is Matt Benz. He was on the weather team for eight semesters from 2003 to 2007. He is now the morning meteorologist at WJFW in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Benz has been interested in meteorology as long as he can remember but recognizes Studio One has had a major impact on his career. “Studio One gave me the tools that allowed me to get into the real world with little lag time,” says Benz. “The fact that Studio One will be celebrating its 400th show shows how successful the program is. One of the reasons for the successfulness of Studio One is its ability to change with the times,” he adds. There any many changes on the horizon for the program. Currently, Studio One is getting ready to switch from analog to digital and is searching for new markets to play the program.

Along with changes, some things remain the same. “Teamwork , quality, Studio One Alumni Matt Benz and Kira Dordal communication and professionalism will always remain the focus of our project,” says Suzanne Irwin, Director of Marketing for Studio One. “Our were both Studio One weather team interns and interns produce an amazing television show, but what we are really trying to do will be married fall 2009. is to develop our student’s abilities in these four main areas.” October 1, 2009 will be an exciting day for the Season 44 crew. Following the 400th production, there will be a small celebration for current students, alumni and contributors to the Studio One program.

The group was created and was helpful to notify interns about uncoming events. It went well and most interns helped. It was a great way for people to hear about the show. Interns wore their shirts and people noticed. People that ordered pizza were reminded of the show and were encourged to come/apply. Ads were placed in the paper to encourage applications.

It was a fast, easy way to get our name out. Students eating were able to see internships available. Passing students were able to see photos of Studio One interns at work. Talked with students and handed out refreshments. Another opportunity to remind students about applying to Studio One. We weren't able to giveaway a hockey ticket, but did give someone the zamboni ride. This did not work because the staff threw the table tents. This event did not happen because we were not prepared in time. In previous semesters we held a concert and did not realize the amount of preparation that would go into planing an anti-stress event instead. With a table set up in the Wellness Center we handed out water to thirsty students and reminded them to apply. People didn't just throw the gum away like the rest of their mail, instead they looked at the sticker on it. We handed out gum at Squires over lunch. This event went well as people really wanted the gum and were more than willing to stop. Due to weather this event did not happen. Instead in April we went bowling to make up for missing this event. After missing school due to flooding this event did not happen. Good turn out because we held the event on a Thursday when there was no show.

Studio One Season 43 Season Summary Spring 2009


Goal Analysis – Audience Development Review The Audience Development Team’s purpose was to develop an audience for the weekly show. The team met every Monday at 3:15 to go over that week’s prospective audience as well line up future audience members. The marketing team helped to generate a list at the beginning of the season that would incorporate many different organizations, schools, and people to invite to the show. The main groups that were focused on this season were: -

Student organizations Greek houses Schools from surrounding communities Parents and friends Professors & new faculty

The Audience Development Team contact many different student organizations, but had trouble with receiving a return phone message or e-mail. Studio One did have larger groups visit the studio which included Devils Lake Region College and Roseau High School. One of our shows audiences was geared towards new professors to the campus who had never seen the Television Center. This group was invited when President Kelley was featured on the show. At the end of our season, two shows were reserved for family and friends of interns. A major focus on the Audience Development Team was the creation of a Greek contest to attract more audience members. Several marketing team members developed a contest that would allow UND Greek houses the opportunity to win advertising on Cable Channel 3 &17 for their house’s next philanthropy event. The house would win this prize by having house members attend the live show. Whichever house with the highest percentage of attendance to the shows, would win the advertisements for the philanthropy event and one member of the winning Greek house would win a $50 Best Buy gift card. The Audience Development Team recommends a constant effort and push for a large audience each show. The staff and interns feel more motivated when there is a large audience.

Audience Development Team Feedback Do you feel the Greek Contest went well? Yes

How could we improve the Greek Contest?

What types of groups did you invite to the show

What types of groups were missed or should of been invited for future shows?

How did you contact the group?

Encourage the houses to have all members attend a show. We had a lot of repeat guests. This is fine, but I feel there were people assigned to be at the shows to win the contest, other than to have their houses learn about Studio One.

It was hard with the weather this season, but more high school student classes that are related to the show and internship should be invited.

Called, E-mailed, Sent Invitation, Friend Family, Intern Invite

Yes

I think the contest went great. Now that we know about it we can get involved with it a little bit earlier and make often and efficient contact as needed. I think this works well with Greek because of the philanthropic activities. If there was a way where we could reach an incentive deal for other clubs/groups, then we would be able to use that to our advantage for future audiences.

I think we really need to try and focus on media groups and possibly advertising groups in the future to really show them what we are about and to generate some thinking by those individuals of possibly coming to college at UND and interning at Studio One.

Called

No

I don't know how to improve it, because it is really hard to get the Greek community motivated, the thing that may have hurt this contest the most may have been the flooding. Other than that, getting them the contest earlier may have been an option as well. Possibly offering something bigger as a prize may have also worked or maybe do something with a business to get a bigger prize. The biggest problem would be to get the houses to want the prize bad enough to actually participate. Although one house did (Sigma Chi) others weren't as easy to get to the show. More people could contact more Greek houses, maybe.

Student organizations, Greek houses, family members and friends, and other college students were the groups I invited. We invited a host of groups from Organization around campus that has some direct or indirect contact and content that deals with Studio One internship positions. We also invited schools around the region as well a family and friends and random individuals we contacted such as professors, students, etc. School groups, parents, Greek Houses, and teachers were all invited to a show.

I think if we could work on getting schools to come to more shows that would be great, but i think we would have to start getting involved in the summer so they could incorporate it into there teaching plan for the following fall semester.

Called

Yes
