The Southside is a weekly 15 minute radio show that discusses the news, sports, arts, and entertainment of Newton South and the Newton community as a whole.
The show airs on 1550 AM, WNTN, at 7:45 on Saturday mornings.
Senior Lisa Bernard is the director of the Southside radio show. She began as a freshman, working at the station as a reporter, working with former Southside director Doug Randall on documentaries.
Randall taught Bernard how to use the controls and run the program.
“Broadcast communications interest me, so I was fascinated that South had a radio show. It was an opportunity that I had to take advantage of,” Bernard said.
Bernard has made several changes to this year’s Southside such as the format of the show, making it less rigid by changing the introductory music and by adding junior Josh Weintraub’s Top Ten List.
Bernard also plans to make public service announcements regarding AIDS and suicide.
In the past, Bernard has made documentaries covering topics, such as the graduating class of 1988 and pressure at South.
Last week Southside featured a documentary concerning school attendence.
“I enjoy investigative reporting. I like being able to plan a show that involves many different aspects,” Bernard said.
Bernard works with junior Adam Bernard, who is in charge of Southside Lion Sports.
“I have to find out scores of sports events, highlights of all the games, and anything that happened in the Athletic Department during the week,” Adam Bernard said. Seniors Carrie Ansell and Ilana Marcus are in charge of Southside’s Arts and Entertainment section.
“I love everyone I work with. I wish it were easier for me to get people involved but I never know who is interested. Anyone can get involved if they approach me,” Lisa Bernard said.
“It’s a lot of fun and it gives you experience with radio,” Ansell said.
“It’s a good experience because it helps you overcome shyness and it’s a relaxing atmosphere,” Harris said.
