A two-year-old broadcast journalism program in Manhasset is hoping to create some future TV stars.
The school's new journalism program gives students hands-on learning experience both in front of and behind the camera.
It is giving some students like junior Megan Amato a new idea of what they're able to do.
"Oh, I'm good at this and that freaked me out," Amato says. "And then I was like 'Oh wait, I'm really good at this,' I know what I'm doing."
There is also an after-school club where students put on a weekly show called "Good Morning Manhasset."
They've built the program from the ground up, including the curriculum and studio that is now stocked with professional equipment.
"When you provide interesting, engaging opportunities to students and give them that autonomy to really drive forward with it and make it their own, it's beautiful," says Matthew Coleman, broadcast journalism teacher. "It's why I became a teacher."
The students are hoping to turn their newscast from weekly to daily
