YouNews 2020: 15-year-old Enya Ernst hosts "10vor10

As part of YouNews 2020, the Swiss Youth Media Week, young people are creating an entire edition of "10vor10". The show is hosted by 15-year-old Enya Ernst. For the "Tagesschau," young people report on the preparations for the Lauberhorn races.


On Friday, January 17, 2020, the audience can expect a youthful edition of "10vor10". The entire show will be co-created by a total of 15 young people from all over German-speaking Switzerland aged between 12 and 19.

One of them is Enya Ernst, who takes her place at the moderation desk. The 15-year-old goes to the Kantonsschule Wattwil SG and is coached by Arthur Honegger for her performance.

The assignment on "10vor10" will also be special for 16-year-old Matteo Schmid. The electronics apprentice will soon be recruited for recruit school. Beforehand, he will have the opportunity to get to the heart of Defense Minister Viola Amherd in an interview on the subject of recruit school and fighter pilots.

The young people work on all the reports for the program and also set the topics in some cases. For example, based on input from young people, the news magazine reports on online trade from China and its ecological impact, as well as on the fascination of e-sports.
