Broadcast Student of the Year shadows WXXV News team


We here at WXXV News 25 believe in mentoring our young people and doing what we can to help their dreams come true.

That’s why the winner of WXXV’s Broadcast Student of the Year Scholarship Contest Wade Taliancich had the chance to shadow the WXXV morning crew!

Wade was impressed and quickly realized how much work goes into putting the shows together. He even had a chance to help News 25’s Caroline Eaker in her live shots this morning.

Wade tells News 25 he’s enjoyed every bit of this experience. “It’s one of the greatest things I have ever done. It’s the thing I have focused on for the past year. To finally get awarded for that and for someone to recognize me and to get so much money for that, it’s astounding.”

St. Martin High School senior Garrett Slade also received a $2,000 scholarship.
