Eagle Eye News at Jonathan Law High School in Milford looks – and sounds – a lot different this year.
At Jonathan Law, the morning news broadcast, Eagle Eye News, allows students to hear daily announcements and stay updated on school activities.
Broadcast journalism teacher Mr. Kulenych says that updates to Eagle Eye News have improved the quality of the news.
“We’ve been looking forward to getting this new equipment for a while and the kids have been amazing in learning how to use it,” Kulenych said.
New high definition Sony cameras allow for higher picture quality than the old models. New camera also updated features and settings.
Other new features on the news include podcasts like Four Down Territory, a football talk show produced by senior Nick Owens.
“The podcast gives me an opportunity to practice sports talk radio, which is a field that I want to pursue after high school,” Owens said.
Eagle Eye News Radio is also now streamed across the school for students and teachers to listen to during class.
Senior Emma Carollo believe that the radio improves the quality of the school day.
“I think Eagle Eye News Radio makes class more enjoyable and it makes the day go by faster when you hear one of your favorite songs come on in the background,” Carollo said.
Overall, the improvements to the news have made positive impacts on students’ daily experiences.
