Future journalists snap up Eddy Awards
New York-area journalists, including News 12's Matt Sampson, honored Catholic elementary and high school students at the 37th annual Eddy Awards.
The ceremony, held at the Catholic ITV studios at St. Joseph's Seminary in Yonkers, honored students who produce the "News and Views" programs. The programs are seen throughout the New York Archdiocese.
The big winners locally were the students at Annunciation School in Crestwood. They were named the best elementary school news team.
For some of the youngsters, the real-life experience they receive is just the first step in a lifelong career in TV news.
