In order to stay relevant with their main audience, students, the BearFacts has made quite the changes in the last two years, going from print to online.

The 2018-2019 school year, the BearFacts staff began recording daily announcements and posting them on the social media outlet, Instagram. However, the staff and school administration felt that the announcements were not broadcasted to many students. Principal John Gosselink recommend to the BearFacts staff that they partner with the A/V Practicum class to make a weekly Friday show to broadcast the great things happening at Bastrop High. Everything from script writing, reading the announcements, are handled by the BearFacts staff, while A/V Practicum students, produce, direct, edit and video. BearNation News, or BNN for short, are shown every Friday in third period. If you miss BearNation News one week, you can catch up at the BearNation News channel on Youtube. Be sure to check it out.
