Local Motion: Pass the Mic Commentaries

Pass the Mic” is a youth storytelling and news corps program developed by KVNF in partnership with the The North Fork Heart & Soul Project.  Youth participants learn the skills of how to produce interviews and stories in a multi-media context.   All 7 young reporters are assigned to a “beat” reporting on a North Fork industry.  Today the kids share their opinions on some important issues and the industries they are reporting on.
