COC student Erin FritGerald interviews Santa Clarita Mayor Bob Kellar during Tuesday night's live election show coverage that COC and SCVTV hosted.

College of the Canyons turned history into a lesson on election night.

The college’s Radio, Television and Film 225 Advanced TV Production class hosted a three-hour broadcast covering the Tuesday’s historic election from Time-Warner’s Channel 20 Community Access Center.

The coverage was a first of its kind for the college and the evening was a success, instructor Dave Brill said.

“This coverage was two months in the planning and involved over 30 RTVF students, alumni, and even students from West Ranch High School’s television program,” he said. “Everyone involved with the production did a terrific job in pulling off a very complicated event for the community.”

RTVF students Michael Baccelli and Lacey Ehrlich along with co-host Kelly Nish from Academy of the Canyons Middle High School worked in the studio during the live three-hour program. Field reporters added color and comments from the field.

Field crews reported from all across the Santa Clarita Valley. Students Nanor Khoury and Erin FritGerald reported from the Republican headquarters while Claudine Sarmiento and Mary Barbarian covered the Democrats. Jim Walker reported from various locations getting man-on-the-street reactions. Beatrice Franklin covered Obama events from the Salt Creek Grille Restaurant, Brill said.

Pulling off a successful broadcast on an historic evening fired up some local broadcasters.
