ALSTV, Antwerp Local School’s unique broadcast journalism and video production program, is unlike any other in the area. Every day, ALSTV students produce a live morning broadcast called Archers Live in a professional studio. Archers Live airs to the entire school district and community through the ALSTV Archers Live YouTube channel. These broadcasts include school announcements and information, student achievements and recognitions, interview clips, feature videos, and more.

ALSTV students include those involved with Student Technology Services (STS) and those enrolled in the broadcast journalism class. Through the broadcast journalism class, students develop important 21st Century skills in an authentic learning environment as they create content for and anchor Archers Live. Through this process and direct instruction, students learn the basics of journalism, broadcast terminology, news writing skills, interviewing skills, videography, and video editing. Students also become proficient users of broadcast production equipment, DSLR cameras, and Adobe Premiere. In addition, broadcast journalism students participate in field experiences in the community, visit real-world media production facilities, attend journalism workshops and conventions, and have the opportunity to compete in state and national contests.
