The nationally award-winning broadcast journalism and cinematic arts classes celebrate their 20th anniversary this year. Founded by adviser Michael Hernandez (Apple Distinguished Educator and 2015 LA County Teacher of the Year), the program boasts 3 MCHS Students of the Year (and one finalist), and alumni that work for NBC, ABC, MTV and Disney. Broadcast Journalism students in these classes produce the Mustang Morning News live newscast, and Cinematic Arts students create short films and host an international student film festival each May. Both classes participate in international documentary trips to countries like Cuba and Cambodia. The first live Mustang Morning News of the year is September 25th at 9:00am.
