Lights, Camera, Action!

The Charger Bulletin News (CBN) is back again for another year of covering everything that goes on at the University of New Haven. To kick off the new semester, CBN held its annual auditions for its anchor positions on Aug. 31. Those lucky few that were selected will be seen by the Charger community on each episode every week.

Jada Clarke, a communication major who is in her second year as producer for CBN, said, “This is one of the first times Charger Bulletin News held auditions for our news anchor positions. The process went very smoothly, and we had a good amount of people show up.”

Clarke said that the audition brought in five new students and brought back three veterans to the production.

“Those who auditioned really put themselves out there,” said Clarke. “I can tell they are willing to put in the work. I’m very excited to start recording episodes and showcase the talent of CBN.”

Sophomore hospitality major Sadie Fraser-Read, who joined the broadcast last spring, has a background in theatre, so she said she is familiar with the process of auditioning. Fraser-Read has been an anchor since her first year. She said, “It was much more casual than my past experiences, which is obviously a good thing. It was also more friendly than most auditions and everyone was talkative with each other and made you feel so much better, it definitely took away some of the nervous feelings I had prior.”

You don’t have to be worried that your major isn’t in the communication department. The broadcast is open to people from all majors who want to participate and join a community on-campus.

Although the audience sees the anchors the most, there is a whole team working behind the scenes to make these weekly episodes possible. If you weren’t able to make the auditions, or if being on television isn’t necessarily your thing, feel free to come out and learn a new skill as a member of the crew. Be sure to watch each week to keep up with what is happening around campus.
