APTRA Academy
Mentors for APTRA Academy 2003
Every year a bunch of professionals in our business get together with a bunch of people who want to be in our business. They give of their time and from their hearts. What you're about to see is the first installment
of this year's APTRA Academy Mentors List. Each week,between now and Academy weekend, we will be adding names of anchors, reporters, photographer, news managers and others in our business who will be participating in what's been called "one of the hottest workshops in the country!" The 4th annual APTRA Academy will be held October 11 and 12 at Cottontail Ranch in Malibu. You'll find a lot of information and a bunch of pictures about the camp on and As of this writing there's still space if you want to sign up at ... but hurry ... this program does sell out! Again ... my thanks to all of the people on this list and those we will add in the weeks to come.
