The station continues to provide tours of our facility to local schools to show where and how the news is produced, and to answer questions on what skills are needed to work in the industry, including education. The station's on air talent maintain an extensive schedule with community groups and schools. Dozens of visits were made to schools to read to students, helping them develop a love of reading and continuing education, teaching them about weather and the environment, sports and health, and to answer questions about television, world events, and issues that impact children. Our news personalities are all active in the community, including one who serves on the board of the Northern California Chapter of the National Association of Television Arts and Sciences, serving in the Mentoring and Scholarship programs. Our station is active on social media, where we frequently field questions from children, and take the opportunity to encourage them to continue their education, act in a socially responsible manner, and become good stewards of the planet on which they live.
