Contributed by Melissa Gattine

Two Ithaca College students will be contestants on the syndicated version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Amanda Pendolino '07 and Jessica Morello '05 will be on shows airing July 4-5 and July 8 respectively. Who Wants to be a Millionaire? is shown on WIXT (ABC) at 7:00 p.m.

Amanda and Jessica attended a field trip in November 2004, sponsored by the Park School of Communications to the set of Millionaire in New York City. The students sat in the audience of a live taping, and then were given the opportunity to audition for the show. Nicole Muehlhaussen '07 won $8,000 on the show in May 2005.

Amanda is a television-radio major from Clarence, N.Y. Jessica, who graduated in May with a degree in cinema and photography, is from Jaffrey, N.H.
