LHS is now offering a new course to help young journalists evolve in the ever-changing world of news: Broadcast Journalism. Broadcasting students, taught by Mrs. Kelly, and Media Arts students, taught by Mr. Carnevale, are working together to deliver the news for the Lindenhurst School Community. This course provides students with the opportunity to show off their talents both in front and behind the camera. Broadcasting Students are going to report the news based on current school events, and local issues that are relevant to the LHS community.

Broadcasting is also a great way to improve public speaking skills and sets students up to interact with their audience. It can also help interested students improve college and career skills.  Students are going to get the opportunity to experience what it is like to work in a real-work atmosphere as the equipment in the media room is on the cutting edge of technology. 

Students enrolled in this class have signed up for several reasons. Freshman Joseph Rippo has had experience with this class in middle school. He says, “I took Broadcasting this year because of how much fun I had in a TV studio. Broadcasting is definitely one of my favorite classes this year. Others are taking this class for the first time. Senior Joseph Simile says, “Being a part of the inaugural year of the broadcasting program at LHS has been an incredible experience…I’ve found it also helps with public speaking and being able to pace yourself in your speech.”

Whether you have past experience or not, Broadcasting is a great course to take and has so many job great opportunities that come with it.
