ABC7 anchor Marc Brown participated and told students what it's like to be a TV journalist.
"It's something different every day," said Brown. "I come in to work, and it could be a completely different thing going on. It could be an earthquake, a car chase. Anybody ever see a car chase on TV?"
The Compton Avenue School students also got a chance to learn about careers with the forest service, the LAPD, the postal police and other agencies.
