The NNPS-TV production team goes to great lengths -- and sometimes great heights -- to get the right shot for their videos. In mid-October, their assignment took them all the way to the top of Busch Gardens' Griffon, the super-popular 205-foot high roller coaster that opened in 2007.

NNPS-TV Producer Nik Long is known for running around with his video camera. And he ran cross country in high school -- and runs for health and occasionally participates in a 5K or maybe a 10K. But training for and running a marathon - that's 26.2 miles
- is a whole different thing. When Long decided it was a goal he wanted to attain, injuries, snowstorms and work and family obligations were not going to stand in his way.
NNPS-TV recently welcomed students from Saunders Elementary to the station for a tour and a hands-on exercise with the TV studio equipment and the NNPS-TV production team. Fifteen students were delighted to see a real television studio and learn from real TV producers and videographers.
