JAX at Yahoo!

Touring the Yahoo Studio offices in Times Square, New York City was an enriching experience for the media teachers and the students. It was fun to visit the different parts of the office where we got an inside look at what goes on behind the scenes. Yahoo is not only a search engine which also allows people to create an email account but the office in NYC broadcasts a live show that briefs people about the current events in America. One of the areas we toured was the various studio spaces and we were allowed to sit in the control room while they broadcasted the live show on their website. It was interesting to see what each person’s job was in the control room. We also visited an editor in his editing bay to learn about what project he was working on and how he goes about working on it. Overall, it was refreshing to see the Yahoo employees go about their day and love what they do as their job.
