Bellmore-Merrick’s Broadcasting students earned top honors at the BASH Awards at Stony Brook on May 3.
Rocco Law and Brandon Hislop won first place for “Best Anchor Team” for their work on Sports Talk, out of 24 teams.
“Rocco stays late, comes in early and goes above and beyond for the program,” said teacher Stuart Stein. “And Brandon is the perfect on-air foil for Rocco sharing his love of sports and always being ready to challenge him.”
Casey Fahrer finished second in category of Best School News Package. He was also recently selected to represent Bellmore-Merrick as a National Youth Correspondent to the 2019 Washington Journalism and Media Conference at George Mason University.
“With a team made up of four freshmen, seven sophomores and four juniors, BMB was easily the youngest group of nominees at a senior-dominated event,” added Stein.
Mepham was one of only two schools in all of Nassau County to be recognized and one of only five schools to win or place in multiple awards. All of the students who attended the event were inspired and filled with ideas to take BMB productions to the next level for next year’s competition.
