Several ways to interpret the stated goal of “reporting some of the happier happenings in our community”:
- An opportunity for budding reporters to hone their skills on enlightening human interest stories and positive community events that fly under the radar during a typical grim news day.
- A momentary respite from the sensationalism creeping into the news world.
- A program that allows a media outlet like CFRB to break in fresh young talent gently, without the fear of any of these raw recruits screwing up a hard news story.
- It’s summer—who wants to be depressed on a sunny day?
