Students can now create podcasts about matters important to them

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.
