    The Broadcast Center

    YouTube Channel / Morning Announcements

    The Broadcast Center is the hub of morning announcements and original video productions by Lincoln High School students. Students in Broadcast Advisory produce the morning shows, while students enrolled in Broadcast Journalism create, produce and direct short videos, public service announcements, news packages and features for the school community. As the center expands, students hope to produce live sports coverage streamed on the internet as well as on our closed circuit television system. Mrs. Doreen Picozzi is the Advisor.

    Journalism and Media Communications CTE Program

    The Lincoln High School Journalism and Multimedia CTE Program provides students with a strong foundation for those who wish to pursue careers in journalism, including broadcast journalism, or communications. The program’s curriculum includes all aspects of career components in journalism, such as journalism ethics, news writing and reporting, interview and research skills, layout and design, set and lighting design, and broadcasting technology.

    Students who complete the CTE program graduate with strong written and oral communication skills in addition to technical skills in publishing and video production. Thanks to strong partnerships with local colleges/universities and media professionals, students are mentored and guided by journalists in various stages of professional development. Before completing CTE requirements, they also offered the opportunity to take Adobe Certification Exams in programs including, but not limited to, InDesign, Premiere Pro and PhotoShop. These professional certifications demonstrate proficiency in technical knowledge skills.
