WINNETKA, Ill. -- Four days a week a group of students at a suburban school put on a new edition of WGST Morning Mews, the World’s Greatest Student Televison. Today they celebrated a major milestone and aired their 2000th episode.

For the last 14 years, Hubbard Woods School, specifically its 4th grade class, has broadcast its very own student run news program in a small studio in the schools basement.

There’s anchors, meteorologist and a student production crew.

In 2000 episodes, the technology has changed but not much of the show. Over 14 years, students write, report and research the industry and the world around them to bring important details to their peers.

After 2000 episodes, there’s only a couple more in that will be filmed in the cramped studio in the basement. Thanks to the foundation, they are moving to the resource center with a little more space and a lot more technology.
