Innovative HL-W class launched several broadcasting careers


Howard Lake-Waverly High School offered the first television production vocational program in Minnesota back in 1971, with KRUD- and KRUM-TV, according to the class instructor, Neil Sideen.

Both programs were produced by a class provided by Wright Vocational Cooperative Center at HL-W High School.

Students received two credits for attending the entire two-hour class. There was also an option to attend less and receive partial credit.

The students covered athletic events, community celebrations, and parades.

They broadcast a daily news-cast, which was a live production that was viewed during the lunch hour at the school.

“One of my fondest memories is when we hooked an antenna up at the school,” Sideen recalled. “We hooked it up backwards, on purpose, so it would transmit instead of receive signal. People could watch our broadcast from 10 miles out.”

HLWW offers broadcast club


Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted High School added a broadcast club to its extracurricular activities list this school year.

The club, KLKR, is advised by Rick Smith, who was one of the people who approached the board with the idea initially.

KLKR has seven members currently, and has produced four episodes of its weekly web-cast, Laker Nation.

Smith offers time for advising and working on the webcasts every day, from 2:45 to 6 p.m.

“We have a great group,” Smith said. “It is not required of the members to be here every day, but most of them are here every day for the entire time because they want to learn and be highly involved.”
