What's Happening?

KEET-TV is seeking a child in grades K through 5 to read a short story for a show called Camp TV. It is a newer show that began in 2020. The show has a short Segment called "Tell Me a Story" in which someone reads a short picture book towards the camera. 

KEET-TV was one of ten stations selected to find a child in our local area to read for the show! We decided the best way to find someone was to hold "auditions". You can do this by either sending in your own video (details below) or coming to our Audition day on April 1st( Information below). We look forward to watching all of your videos. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call 707-497-5052 or email
