The 2010-11 Warren County High School graduation will be broadcast around the world this year, according to video broadcast technician Joe Harvey. The school system’s television station, WCS-TV, BLTV Channel 180, will be streaming the graduation online.
Those interested in watching online can visit www.warrenschools.com and navigate to the streaming website. The live stream will begin at 6:30 p.m. and graduation will begin at 7 p.m.
Harvey says this is actually the second year the event has been streamed. Last year a senior’s parent was in the hospital and unable to attend, so one camera was set up in the press box in Nunley Stadium for that parent, as well as the public, to watch. However, Harvey says there will be several cameras for this graduation. In addition, thanks to modern technology, viewers won’t even need a TV.
“We’re also going to be broadcasting on mobile devices,” said Harvey. “So anyone with an Android or an iPhone or an iPad will be able to watch it on that as well, which I think is pretty neat.”
The online stream will be live and not broadcast on television. However, a replay of the graduation will be broadcast on WCS-TV at a later time to be announced.
