Nine ThreeSixty TV Broadcast Camp students shared their first professionally produced video packages with students, families and ThreeSixty supporters at a July 26, 2019 camp celebration on the St. Thomas campus.
ThreeSixty’s one-week, one-of-a-kind TV Broadcast Camp for diverse high school students is sponsored by The Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota and explores health equity issues in Minnesota. Students’ video features focused on creative physical activity outlets in diverse communities.
The stories were produced in with volunteer personnel from WCCO, FOX 9, KSTP, KARE 11, TPT, BMA Cable; the University of St. Thomas and the University of Minnesota Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
ThreeSixty and Central High School student Safiya Mohamed was featured on FOX 9’s Saturday morning show.

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.
