KNN will soon start-up a new kids news TV+Internet+Radio platform in Bolivia, with local partner Nicobis production house, and in that goal the KNN training weeks kicked off Monday at La Paz.
The first week trainer, Rob Van Trier, chief editor at the NOS Jeugdjournaal, introduced the enthusiastic Bolivian KNN crew into the tricks of the trade, and promoted the planning and development of the program format.
The week also held the Andean traditional opening ceremony (chariaje) for the KNN Bolivia office.
The training will go on for the weeks to come, delivered by experienced kids news makers from the Jeugdjournaal and NAPA, the Peruvian KNN programme, and pilot broadcast are expected for December. Stay tuned.
