KQED’s Youth Takeover of the News


In April, KQED hosted a “Youth Takeover” of the news. Over the course of one week, stories pitched and reported by high school students across the Bay Area could be heard on nine of KQED’s news programs and podcasts. To collect and curate these stories, KQED staff collaborated with a pilot group of ten local high school journalism classes over two months. KQED also teamed up with NPR Generation Listen to produce a live storytelling event featuring youth voices.
