Story #3 Final Draft

Posted at 1:14 PM under Articles/Stories


Good morning, I’m Reilly Mahon reporting for M-C-T-V. Here are the top stories of the hour.

In recent years, Morningside’s women’s basketball team has been a powerhouse. This year’s team started out of the gates slowly with only three wins and two losses.

The improvements need to be shown at their next couple of games, in order to be seen as a competitive team.

I spoke to Daniel Ver Steeg, one of the play-by-play announcers for the Women’s Basketball games this season about how they did in the beginning and what they can do to improve for the rest of the season.

Their current record is five wins and two losses. Their next home game is on November 18th at 5 P.M. in Rosen Verdoorn Sports Center.


Moving to national news, after the recent Manhattan Terror Attack and the Sutherland Springs church shooting, the safety concern in this country is up and will stay up for a while.

This has been an issue in this country lately because of so many shootings in the last couple of years. The terror attacks internationally are making the situation worse because they have made people worry about traveling outside of the U.S.

Safety is also a concern for Morningside College.

I spoke to Brett Lyon, the director of safety and security for Morningside College about what security will do if a terror attack happens on campus.

[Audio Clip] About 30.5 seconds about the protocols if a terror attack happens at Morningside College.

These protocols are also the same for a shooting, if it happens on campus. In today’s world, safety is a factor that people are looking at constantly all the time.


In the last two weeks, President Donald Trump has threatened the Department of Justice and the job of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump wants an investigation on the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton.

One issue in this situation is that the President is forcing an investigation to happen without having evidence to back him up to the DOJ.  Another issue is that the President is threaten Sessions’ job because he is not doing what Trump wants him to do.

I asked James Farnan, a member of the Morningside Civic Union, whether it would be legal for the President to threatening Sessions’ job as Attorney General.

[Audio Clip] About 28 seconds about Trump being able to threaten someone’s job

The President needs to provide the DOJ with evidence before an investigation begins and in order for an investigation to happen.



That’s it for the news this hour, once again, I’m Reilly Mahon reporting for M-C-T-V. Thank you for listening and come back tomorrow at the same time for the news.
