In a new initiative for the Knightly News Media Club at Central Penn College, the club now offers The Knightly News Presents, a way students can create their own podcasts about important subjects or issues in their lives.

While nearly all members have had the chance to be a part of the Knightly News Podcast, many students were interested in starting their own programs.

By starting their own podcasts, they understand the aspects of a producing of such a show.  This ranges from creating an agenda of topics to be discussed, booking talent for the episode, editing the audio, and promotion of the episode on social media.

Two podcasts have begun thanks to this initiative, The Greene Room and the Fantasy Football Strategy Guide.

The Greene Room is hosted by Darren Greene and features Quinyece Walker and Destani Matthews.  According to Greene, “If you like everything pop culture, The Greene Room is the show for you. It is a show that talks about everything that caters to millennials.”

Another show created as part of Knightly News Presents is The Fantasy Football Strategy Guide, hosted by Co-adviser Paul Miller and features Knightly News Reporters Brian Christiana and Ian Kemmerer.

All of the cast members are avid football fans and play in several fantasy football leagues.

This show is mainly for beginning fantasy players, offering advice and insight for those looking for line-up advice.

The Knightly News Media Club at Central Penn College announces The Knightly News Presents, an offshoot of the Knightly News Podcast, that allows students to do episodes about things that interest them.

The first such episode debuts with a two-part fantasy football themed show featuring club members Brian Christiana and Ian Kemmerer, and club co-adviser Paul Miller.

The show, separated into two different episodes, allows Christiana and Kemmerer to prepare listeners for their upcoming fantasy football drafts, typically occurring during the last two weeks of August until Labor Day.

During Episode 1, the discussion focuses on each individual’s top 25 players for 2017, as well as some important draft strategies for beginning players.

In Episode 2, the cast discusses new running backs and wide receivers on new teams, as well as some impact fantasy rookies for the upcoming season.

The Knightly News hopes to offer many more of these types of podcasts in the future, and already hasseveral in the works.
