Eighth-grade student Bryce Jones of Woodstock joined “Closer Look with Rose Scott” last October for a conversation about what it’s like to be a teen reporter.

On Friday, he joined “Closer Look” again, this time by phone, for a conversation about what it’s like to be a teen journalist during the coronavirus pandemic.
