WSBT Scout Day on March 15th was a day full of exciting discoveries for local Scouts. Our Scouts were able to tour the inside of the local WSBT station, meet TV and radio anchors, and learn how the station produces and broadcasts shows . The highlight was the opportunity for the Scouts to be filmed on the “green screen”. Scouts were awarded a patch and received several other souvenirs including an autographed photo of the lead anchors of the TV station! Special thanks to Brian Archambeault for taking the Pack 10 Scouts on this fantastic journey!
