Broadcasting at HHS is open to students in 9th through 12th grades. Broadcasting is both a co-curricular and extra-curricular activity. Students will work to live-stream high school varsity home football games, create commercials, and deliver weekly update broadcasts. Students will work with cameras, video editing, and sound, and will be on-camera broadcasters.
Students who have an interest and/or knowledge of broadcasting should visit with Mr. Hebenstreit in room 207.
Broadcasting at HHS is provided in conjunction with funding from Tiger Academy.
At HMS students in grades 6th through 8th are invited to participate in broadcasting. There are two levels of broadcast classes. Broadcast 1 is an entry-level course. Students learn a variety of topics related to the journalism field, learn how to develop, shoot, edit, and produce a variety of video packages. These include commercials, news packages, and special effects. Students also learn basic marketing strategies. Students must successfully complete Broadcast 1 prior to enrolling in Broadcast 2.
In Broadcast 2 students produce and air daily announcements, weather, commercials, and sports live on the Tiger 5 News YouTube page. Students also produce commercials, news packages, and are in charge of media billboards on the televisions in HMS.
Both classes are considered elective classes but may involve some extracurricular activities. In 2019 and 2020 a group of students traveled to St. Louis for the METC conference and ran the student news bureau and developed marketing videos, video recaps, and ran the social media for the conference.

Students complete an application justifying why they are a good fit for the club. They must also be recommended by their classroom teacher. To maintain membership in the club, students may not have behavior referrals.
