Perhaps you weren’t awake at 6:40 in the morning on Friday, June 17. But Starlings from the Oceanside and Oakland teams were not just out of bed, but getting a taste of how a morning news segment is produced.

San Diego 6 News in the Morning’s Ruben Galvan made a special visit to Alliant University to preview the 2011 Starlings National Tournament, which was also featured on the 10 p.m. broadcast. Thanks to Ruben for his support!
