Two sixth-graders from St. Mary’s Area Middle School have passed up paper routes and dog-walking jobs to get behind the microphone at WKBI (1400) in St. Mary’s, reports WJAC-TV (6). Matt Wickett, who is legally blind, has a “remarkable knowledge of music,” the station says, while Alex Schreiber provides technical skills and “attention to detail.” Their teacher calls them local celebrities, and the boys tell WJAC they’d love to work in either “Detroit or Los Angeles” one day. (Fellas, take PBRTV’s advice and choose Los Angeles.) WKBI’s website reports that the duo is to receive an award from the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters on May 7 in Hershey.
