Welcome to the first episode of Season 19 of Teen Kids News!

For many teens preparing for college is top of mind. Ava gets some tips on getting over some of the highest hurdles to getting a higher education.

The National Road Safety Foundation is an organization that’s all about encouraging teens to be safe drivers. That’s why they sponsor a series of Drive Safe PSA Challenges across the country. This one takes us to the state of Georgia.

Sometimes names of locations can be confusing. For example, two places may have what looks like the same name but is pronounced completely different. And sometimes the name of a place might be intentionally misleading. In this week’s “What’s in a Name?” Veronique tells us how the country of Greenland got its name.

Emily reports on one of the most ironic and tragic twists of wartime fate.

From being called to the stage to fill in after the curtain has already gone up on a Broadway musical…to becoming hoarse on stage in the middle of a concert…we talk to some of our Rising Stars about their scariest moments as performers.

TEEN KIDS NEWS
I owe my career to Albert T. Primo.Watching ABC7NY Eyewitness News inspired me to become the editor of my high school newspaper, The Daltonian, and then to major in journalism at Northwestern.Shortly after graduation came the unforgettable thrill of walking into the newsroom as a just-hired member of EWN. Albeit the very lowest member. Just a desk assistant. Al had left by then, but the EWN ethos was already imprinted in my DNA. No doubt my total buy-in to the concept he pioneered fueled my rise from DA to writer to program producer. Over the years, I caught Al’s notice and we became friends.When I left WABC to start a production company - first with Roseanne Scamardella and then with my wife, Tania – Al would bring projects he wanted produced in the “Eyewitness-stye.” Most notably, TEEN KIDS NEWS.Yet again Al saw a need that everyone else was missing: a TV program that would give age-appropriate news to young teens...delivered by teens.It was an instant success, clearing some 200 stations in just a handful of months. I can still see Al’s megawatt smile lighting up the huge hotel ballroom as we accepted Teen Kids News’ first Emmy. And I’m grateful Al was well enough last week to watch the special anniversary program launching TKN’s 20th year on the air.So many lives have been changed for the better because of this visionary giant. It’s been a privilege working with him. Albert T. Primo will be missed. - Alan J. Weiss ... See MoreSee Less
