Two students anchor the 7- to 8-minute newscast, but even more of them man cameras and standby in the control room watching their work. 

"Just for a minute and 30 seconds, you could be working on it for two or three weeks," said Brandon Pruitt, a senior and technical producer for the show.

WIRED just earned an "Excellence Award" from the Student Television Network, honoring it as the best in the country. 

"We've had such an amazing group this year and a lot of hard workers," said Brianna MacNaught, executive producer. "It's just a humongous honor because it's what we do every day. It's what we work hard for every day."
