Cy's Eyes on the Skies is Iowa State's local weather show run by meteorology students. If you plan on going into broadcast this is the place for you. The only way at getting good at speaking in front of a camera, interacting with a green screen, running graphics, and speaking on the fly is by practicing it and Cy's Eyes gives you the opportunity to do this two times a week throughout most of each semester.
Four people go on air, each person with their own segment: Host, Weather in the News, National Weather, and Iowa Weather. Each person prepares their graphics in the maproom back at Agronomy hall before each show. The show will last for about 20 minutes.
If being on air is not for you, that's fine! Our back crew could use your help. Our show is entirely student run and includes other backstage jobs such as: running a camera, working sound, running commercials, director, and name key. If it wasn't for these guys we would not have a show.
We are very fortunate to have our very own studio along with a green screen and graphics system. It would be foolish not to take advantage of this opportunity to get involved. Cy's Eyes is valuable experience for any broadcaster and will almost certainly help in getting hired at a station.
