Practicum is a Ben Barber Class Radio Broadcasting Class designed to get students real-world broadcasting experience inside and outside the classroom. Daily shows, district and community DJ events and professional commercial production.
Sports Broadcasting is a program dedicated to teaching students all the ins and outs of the sports production industry, such as play-by-play, sideline reporting, sports updates, and radio show production. We also have the opportunity to meet with local business owners and negotiate sponsorship deals with them.
Riley, AKA FoxxxyGradpa, AKA Foxxxy, is a pretty cool dude. He is a Leo and he drinks a lot of milk. Riley drives a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica and he loves it. He likes his dog more than every member of his family and watches SpongeBob constantly. Riley sleeps on a futon, which is terrible for his neck and back, but he’s too lazy to get a real bed.
Riley, unfortunately, goes to Frontier High School, and is in the Practicum Radio Class. He is a spot on dude and can edit like a G (*cough* Skills *cough*). Riley is part of the Drive with his fellow hosts, Marcus & Zaki. They talk about music, sports, cars, girls, school, food, and everything else that goes through a teenage boy’s head. You can catch the Drive some time from 11:30 to 2:20, on B-Days, because you know when B-Days are, right?
My name is Darius Heavens. I am a senior at Lake Ridge High School. I’ve been in radio for 3 years now, my first show was Da Bang, and my second show was called Radio Rejectz, and now I’m in practicum radio doing radio shows and dj dances for Mansfield schools. That’s like my senior story right there fam.
I like listening to music; I listen to music like all the time. I’m trying to do more activities, but I’m kind of too lazy to go out and do stuff. You can probably catch me at Whataburger next to Legacy flickin my wrist on the grill. FMOT: O_G_U_D

Hey you probably don’t know me so here's a little info so you can get a general idea. First and foremost I am a Timberview Wolf. I am currently a Senior and will be attending Texas Tech in the fall of 2017. My hobbies include running track, playing basketball, and watching ESPN, Uninterrupted and FirstTake. I am into fashion, my fashion idol is A$AP Rocky. In the future I want to be a sports analyst or a writer for BleacherReport.
I am Ethan Guyer I am a person that went into my Sophomore year not sure what I wanted to do as a career. So I thought what do I want to do? I want to do something where I don’t have to grieve going to work, I want to be happy with the job I go to everyday. Next what are my talents? A lot of my talents are for football and basketball, yet I am really good at talking and creating things and I love music, so what other program of study could fit better? Radio/Broadcasting! Once I started I was nervous and excited all together, because I couldn’t wait to start but at the same time I didn’t know how good I’d be. Now I’m a Senior and I am in Practicum Radio, the highest level, and I love it. So when I go to college this is the field of study I will continue.
Now about me personally I like a lot of different music and I’m very open minded to songs, but I mostly prefer songs with good beats. I love watching and playing football and basketball, even though I go to Frontier I am still going to play one of the sports I love, so I’m going to play AAU basketball and walk on football in college and whichever one takes me further in life is the one I’m going to run with. Other than watching or playing sports I like to play video games; the games I play is Madden, NBA2k and any good game that involves shooting someone. Finally, I love spending time with friends and family, making sure I cherish every moment with the people, because you never know when they will be gone so you don’t want to regret not spending more time with them.
