Ken's weathercast.  Note the blank green background and the monitor behind him with the graphic superimposed with Ken. Ken has nothing behind him but the green screen, however, note the actual broadcast on the monitor with the globe and the graphics.
Ken gave the students a run through on how he prepares the weather presentation each day. Ken spent time after the broadcast and tour to visit with our students.
Justin, one of our graduate students tries his hand at the fine art of giving a TV weather presentation. Note again how there is actually nothing behind Justin, yet in the broadcast the weather graphic appears behind him.
