During the camp, students went behind-the-scenes at the KSTP studio in St. Paul, with a special tour from anchor Matt Belanger. ThreeSixty campers were able to practice delivering the weather with meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas, and watched anchor Brandi Powell deliver the midday news.

Students said it was one of the highlights of their week.

In October 2019, Belanger will host ThreeSixty’s annual fundraiser, the Great MN Media Get Together.
